Rodriguez is slugging his way to success
“A star is born” is a clichè used in every sport. Often, it refers to a phenom, born with extraordinary talent in a given field, who has finally made the big time. Very rarely do you hear the words, “a star is built”. That is, unless you find yourself in the Mahoning Valley Scrappers clubhouse and bear witness to the emerging talent that is Nellie Rodriguez.
