Venezuelan Baller Yolmer Sánchez Talks Fatherhood
Chicago White Sox, Yolmer Sánchez, sits down with La Vida Baseball to discuss how becoming a father transformed his life perspective.
This rare and beautiful glimpse into the humbling experience of fatherhood from a top tier athlete in professional sports is one that can easily be lost in the fanfare of home runs and Gold Glove Awards.
“It has made me a better person, a better son, a better husband, it makes me value life more.”Yolmer Sánchez, Shortstop, Chicago White Sox
With all of the stigmas surrounding machismo and chauvinism within the Latinx community, it is very encouraging to see this type of trope-shattering representation.
Also, did we mention that Yolmer loves to share his sense of humor and optimistic attitude with his teammates? Check out the great feature about him produced by NBC Sports Chicago, where they refer to him as, “The spark of the team.”
Given the rise of Latino ballers in the MLB over the course of the last several years, we are really excited to see the players get their shine.
