according to MLB.com:
"The Padres have employed Miley to teach front-office staff, Minor League coaches and roving instructors, trainers and anyone else who shows up to Spanish instruction aimed toward narrowing the language barrier between player and staff.
It's a program Randy Smith, the Padres' director of player development, and who has a front row seat twice a week for class, has instituted. Smith has enlisted Miley, who is a foreign language instructor at nearby Glendale Community College, to teach."
From what I also understand, players are staying after practice for two hours twice a week to take lesson on Spanish verbs and other common words associated to baseball. The majority of the classes are geared towards people in the front office and for traveling personnel to be able to talk to other scouts regarding players of interest.
I recall taking Spanish in High School and in College. I don't remember squat! Just because San Diego is close to the border doesn't mean you have to act on it. Bad enough we have players in the majors with 15-20 letters in their last name, all sorts of marks and hyphens and recently now we have ESPN Deportes. Whats next....closed caption at the stadium for bilingual people. The baseball word is branching out too much too fast. It is America's sport and we should keep it that way. If we keep this up we will soon be batting with chopsticks.
And the title means Spanish speakers go to hell.
