On Monday, Prime Minister the Hon. Gaston Browne met with young Antiguan and Barbudan pitcher Ovis Portes in his office to congratulate him on his major sporting success.
Ovis was recently signed by the Boston Red Sox to play in the minor league baseball in the United States.
Prime Minister Browne encouraged the young baseball player to work hard, stay focused and remain vigilant throughout this next stage of his sporting career.
PM Browne also assured the baseball athlete of his government’s commitment and support. Portes represented Antigua and Barbuda in 2017 at the Caribbean Pre World Series Little League Baseball Tournament played at Stanford’s cricket pitch in Coolidge.
During the meet and greet with PM Browne, Ovis was accompanied by his mother Rodiel Portes, and the President of the Antigua and Barbuda softball and baseball team, Mr. Manuel Melenciano.
