This week, we look at a man who was signed at 16 years old to come to the states & play baseball. Everything started out well enough, being called "the next Willie Mays", but it quickly deteriorated. Especially after a woman was found, shot to death in his hotel room. Somehow, it gets worse, with a lifestyle that leaves a lot to be desired, especially by the woman he hits, and police he fights!   Secretly learn hoe to play baseball, while your father thinks you're working, pull a nightstick from a cop's belt, and pay $100 for a human life with Cesar Cedeno!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

This week, we dig into the life of a boxer with 9-39-2 career record? We can finally answer the question of why a guy like that keeps on fighting? But that's the least of our curiosity, considering the fact that the man got away with a most brutal murder, for over 25 years. Only DNA could catch him. But did he do it, or is it a giant conspiracy, involving the LAPD, Leonardo DiCaprio, and The Golden State Killer? You tell us!!   Be one of 17 children, raised on a farm, continue to box, even though you lose 4 times more than you win, and deny that DNA exists with Exum Speight!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
