Followed by making it at ten o'clock. ABC has a new bachelor in. Paradise I'll be tune, in for that followed by the castaways. At ten so there you go All right let's get these sports desk in. Some sports items of interest the Marlins. Are requiring Spanish instruction for English speaking players could God Victoria what. Is this all about Well this is this is, Derek Jeters plan for the group he is. The co owner out of the Miami Marlins and, he said it's part of the. Marlins new education program team executives learning Spanish and the players are learning English. And Spanish reverse while Latin American. Born players, take English classes American born players and. Coaches don't and so now Derek Jeter who is the. CEO he's also taking Spanish lessons. He wants everyone to be bilingual he said I've been to the. Dominican and Venezuela I went to Cuba with MLB in two thousand, sixteen so I've been. To those countries I've tried, to learn as much, as I could about their. Cultures everybody expects the Latin players to make an effort to, speak English especially here, in Miami. If you don't speak Spanish you don't fit in and I think that's important. So he said young players. Are also receiving education in. Budgeting cooking. And more budgeting especially important and so they got rid of. The Miami Marlins are really rebuilding right now they're in. A rebuilding phase? They got rid of some Star players. And they've come under some scrutiny for getting rid of the big talent and. They currently sit in last place. In the, National League east so they have a.

Seems like an important thing Yeah, and with so many players coming from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. And and, other South American countries it makes sense? And you can hear my tone I'm not a big fan of, the idea of where here the dodgers they the, actually uses as an opportunity for, these players who come here Tweet the SEAL who came in from Cuba he is learning English because. Of, his teammates which I think is is pretty. Cool playing in America you're not playing. Latin America, Hello I let's go. Jennifer to.
