Re(2): Bolivar and Cachin

That was one of the great thing in the day when jai alai had big crowds, it was easier to get in underage. I would usually go with my siblings who were all older. They would buy the tickets while I stayed of of view of the fronton workers, and we would go in with the crowd and I would usually slip in OK.

But one time I got turned away. At least my brothers and sisters didn't go in without me. :-)

As for the players, I can't really comment on Michelena, but I think Bolivar, Cachin and Joey would be the top tier, with Remen and Inclan heading up the group below them.

I only saw Asis a little at World Jai Alai before the awful rule that banned minors* but from the results he put up at Miami, it sounds like he might have been the best singles player of them all.

Inclan was amazing at stealing the serve and killing the point, and Zulaica was almost as good at it.

And Ondarres and Egurbi were past their prime, but still pretty darn good. Boli and Cachin didn't have it easy.
