“It’s an honor to be sharing baseball experiences with the boys,” Cantu said. “The team looks very good and always smiling on the diamond…it’s a blessing to play this game,” he added.
Cantu hit .289 with 16 homers and 100 RBIs with the Marlins under manager Fredi Gonzalez in 2009. Cantu expects a solid year in Miami this season. “We are a team with a lot of spark,” he said. “We are going to fight and play hard. I think we have a chance to do something this season.”
