Best Cuban Pitcher Retires

Pedro Luis Lazo
The righty pitcher Pedro Luis Lazo said goodbye to baseball on Sunday after 20-year career in which he became the winningest pitcher in the history of  Cuban baseball, and excelled in the World Baseball Classic and win four Olympic medals.

Dressed in a gray suit and black tie, Lazo, 37, was riding a horse-drawn carriage to the stadium Capitán San Luis de Pinar del Rio, about 200 kilometers west of the capital. There, he made a tribute before the game between Pinar del Rio and Industrial, a ceremony that aired live on Cuban television.

Lazo has accumulated 257 wins in 21 National Series, which launched in 525 games and lost 136. 2,426 strikeouts also managed to finish second in Cuban baseball, behind only Roger Garcia (2499), also in Pinar del Río.
