“Take me out to the ballgame…”
I’m so glad I will be seeing so many of you on Sunday at Dodger Stadium for Cuban Heritage Day. I’m excited to have my new coolest Dodger Blue Habana Brand Clothing tshirt to wear. I’ll be there with my kids and I know it’s going to be a grand “pachanga.”
Congratulations to the winner of all this Super Cuban Dodger Swag.
I know you will enjoy all this beautiful awesomeness.

“I’m an extremely proud Cuban-American and excited to be a part of Cuban Heritage Day this Sunday,” said Grandal. “I look forward to spending time with fans before I head out to represent the Dodgers at the All-Star game. My culture is a big part of who I’m and happy that the club organizes events like these.”
