Arriving at age 13 as a ball boy in La Terraza, the 21-year-old Nolasco is now preparing with longer workouts for the upcoming match against Venezuela. Vasquez added that for more than 25 years Central Romana has been sponsoring the teaching pro players covering all the expenses to participate in national championships. “It would have been practically impossible for us without the company’s help to compete at this level.”
