Together with the president, David Ortiz and Pedro Martínez, two of the four immortals that the Dominican Republic has in Cooperstown, were present, as well as Albert Pujols, who retired at the end of last season and will only need to comply with the necessary protocols to accompany him.

In addition, there was the star of urban music, El Alfa, who has taken his talent around many nations.

Precisely, Alfa handed over the ball to the president to pitch, while Junior Noboa, National Baseball Commissioner, handed him the glove.

After the first pitch, Abinader took photos with several of the special guests on the mound, before leaving to start the action of the game.
