Venezuelans Sing about Rojo Johnson

A friend of mine has been a missionary in Central and South America for many years. He is currently in the Dominican Republic, helping out with Haitian earthquake relief. However, he was stationed in Venezuela in the late 90s where he served as a youth director. One of his roles was coaching a high school baseball team. My friend was excited to read the post on Farmstros about Rojo Johnson possibly coming to Round Rock.

The team he coached in Venezuela faced Rojo several times over a two year period. He will never forget Johnson's over-powering fastball. He also has a clear recollection of the song (El tira La Pelota) that the Venezuelan fans sang whenever Johnson pitched.
