Baseball Radio Broadcaster Felo Ramírez Has Passed Away And Miami Marlins Fans Feel Baseball Will Never Be The Same

Hall of Fame baseball announcer Felo Ramírez passed away on Monday. He was 94. Beginning his radio broadcasting career in Cuba in 1945, Ramírez went on to become the Spanish-language broadcaster for the Miami Marlins in 1993. As noted by the Denver Post, Felo Ramírez gained a lot of love and admiration from Latino baseball fans who listened to his broadcasts over the years.

After hearing the heartbreaking news about Felo Ramírez, the Miami Marlins organization released this statement:


“The entire Marlins organization is deeply saddened by the loss of a great friend, Hall-of-Fame broadcaster and community icon, Felo Ramirez.

Since our inaugural season, he brought home practically every magical moment in franchise history to generations of fans. A true broadcast legend, Felo lent his voice to over 30 World Series and All-Star Games and his extensive contributions to our game will never be forgotten.”

Over 30 World Series!! That’s amazing.

Players from other MLB teams also expressed their sorrow at the loss of a legend.


The news of Ramírez’s death hit hard among the people who grew up listening to him on the radio.


You can really tell how much of an icon he was in the Latino community.

Fans will never forget his charismatic personality, his distinctive voice,  and his signature phrases, such as “ESSSSTRIKE!”


Felo Ramírez created a bond amongst families like no other, and he probably didn’t even know it.

There will never be another baseball broadcaster like Felo Ramírez.


Rest in peace Felo Ramírez. May your legendary voice and uplifting vibes continue to live on.

9 Of The Most Awkward High School Moments You Deal With When You’re An Introvert

When you’re a shy, awkward person like myself, high school activities that require teamwork and public anything speaking are not that fun. As an introvert, these awkward high school moments make the whole back-to-school phase dreadful.

One thing you don’t look forward to is participating in first day ice-breakers.

For most, hearing “Okay class, we’re going to go around the room…” means you get to make new friends or to talk to that cute guy in class.

But nothing makes you panic more than when the teacher calls on you to participate – when you’re not even raising your hand.

There were clearly other students raising their hands, but nooooo, she just has to pick on you.

To make matters worse, you’re assigned to a group project with people who are complete strangers to you.

Now you have to spend your precious time meeting with these people outside of school hours.

Then you have to present in front of the entire class. And it’s so awkward for you. Awkward AF.

Your palms are sweating, you hear your heart racing, you don’t know who to look at or what to do with your hands and that ‘just pretend everyone is naked’ thing, does not work.

But you also have P.E. class, which means more teamwork. ?


Calm down, bruh.

Large school events like pep rallies and school dances are just not your thing.

Yayyy school spirit!

Then you get pressured into participating in extracurricular activities.

More after-school time well spent.

Even though your favorite part about high school is lunch time (because food), it’s also your least favorite time of the day.

Because you either have to force yourself to talk to people… Or hide from them.

And nothing reminds you of your awkward high school phase for the rest of your life like your high school I.D.


You might not be a social butterfly, but guess what, a lot of people aren’t. There’s nothing wrong with being a little shy and awkward.
