Fernando Villegas Bio
I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and I was raised in McLean and Falls Church, Virginia. I began playing baseball at 8 years old with the McLean Little League.
I heard about the DCMSBL through previous teammates who were playing in the DCMSBL. I began playing in the DCMSBL back in 1994. There were many teams I’ve played on in the DCMSBL for the last 30 years. They were the 30+ Braves, 35+ Rattlers, 50+ Outlaws+ Outlaws.
There were many fond memories and funny stories playing in the DCMSBL, however, there were many fond memories of yearly travels to the Fall Classic and other MSBL National tournaments.
One of my fondest memories was hosting a team to the Fall Classic on or about 2001 down in Florida. I had the pleasure of having family and friends from Venezuela fly in to participate. One of the most fun weeks I’ve experienced at the Fall Classic!
I am grateful for my teammates for convincing me to play “one more year”, year after year and to those who have accompanied me on the tournament trips. So here I am going on playing 30 years in the DCMSBL! I would also like to say the game of baseball has been a huge part of my life. I am thankful for the game of baseball for being my savior in sad times, in hard times and for allowing me to meet so many special people along the way…
