"The atmosphere at Estadio 11 de Noviembre was so mellow, so hugely tranquilo, that it hardly mattered who was or was not a major leaguer. Solano, Tavarez, Simon, Cabrera. The lazy rhythm of the game conquered the histories of the men playing it. Fine for Solano, who is probably on his way to millions of dollars. But for Tavarez and Simon and Cabrera, the Colombian winter league felt like a very quiet end, a last hushed breath into obscurity."
