“I would like to keep saying it all my life, but that, only God knows that, Gentlemen, good night and here you say goodbye to Rubén Santana …"concluded Don Mendy, one of the traditional voices of Dominican baseball.
"For my part, that’s everything, thank you very much, gentlemen, for all my listening friends, here and abroad, thank you very much for this constant listening, for this constant monitoring of the Águilas Cibaeñas network. I want to thank you in this game that has already ended, tell the fans that there is always an October, and I, once again, thank the board of the Águilas Cibaeñas, and the marketer for this great opportunity that they give me to tell them year after year since In 1981, when I arrived at Las Águilas: ‘Hello Dominican Republic and the world’, I would like to keep saying it all my life, but only God knows that. Gentlemen, good evening and here you say goodbye to Rubén Santana".
