Chavez presented the major leaguers with a medal of honour named after Venezuelan independence hero Francisco de Miranda. The president then pitched two innings and allowed seven runs.
Fransisco Rodriguez gave up 11 runs during three innings.

Some might argue that with his declining indicator stats last year he may be better off throwing under hand in the Majors here pretty soon
