Furcal Still Shaken from Haiti Earthquake
Shortstop Rafael Furcal reported one day before the first mandatory workout still shaken from the January 12 earthquake in neighboring Haiti.
“I live on the 12th floor and the building was swinging for hours,” said Furcal, who lives in the northern part of the Dominican Republic, about 150 miles from the epicenter of Port-au-Prince. “It made me dizzy for a couple days. And what is happening in Haiti, man, it’s ugly. It’s really ugly. It makes you feel so bad for those people.” — Ken Gurnick
