The baseball Quintero

For a change of pace (so to speak), may I point out proudly that there is a Quintero in baseball's Major Leagues: Humberto Quintero, 26, a catcher from Venezuela. The Houston Astros of the National League have summoned him from the minors (click on this post's title).

In 53 Major League games in three seasons before this year, Humberto batted .221 with three jonrones (home runs; also called cuadrangulares). Best wishes to my fellow Quintero!
