Running the Bases in America



Patricia Mendez-Hall



With a successful track record in management, community relations and business, local resident Patricia Mendez-Hall has more than 25 years experience in building and leading integrated, multi-disciplinary operations in the financial planning and investment industry.

Steering her clients through turbulent financial waters over the years, her passion for helping families solve financial problems has always been her first love.

A professional with a unique perspective, Hall’s career has been spent working with her clients, including Latino ballplayers, to achieve their goals...whether personal, business or financial.

"Running the Bases in America: 11 Lifestyle and Money Management Tips for Latino Ballplayers Who Come to America!" is a business and lifestyle-oriented "how to" book to help Latino ballplayers when they come to America.

Latino ballplayers are recruited to come to America with promises of lots of money and a lavish lifestyle, Hall said. But they are inundated with people trying to be their friends and get in on the "limelight" of celebrity. Their "new friends" take advantage of them, and often, the ballplayers end up broke, even homeless.

The book dispenses tips on the basics of everyday life that an athlete will need to learn to master from how to handle money to leasing or buying a house and saving for retirement. The advice could be useful for anyone who comes to America to pursue their "American dream."
