Yankees Bench coach Tony Pena speaks with Samori Benjamin about his journey from the Dominican Republic to the United States and into Major League Baseball. Listen to why Pena says it’s easier for this generation’s Latin born players to come over to the United States and succeed than it was for his generation of players. Pena also talks about the obstacles he faced coming to the United States as a young man, the passion that the Dominican people have for the sport, major league baseball’s academies across Latin America, the world baseball classic, and the admiration he has for New York Mets general manager Omar Minaya.
