Juan Bobo Meets the 

Barones de Barceloneta

Most people think Barceloneta is a suburb of Barcelona, somewhere in northern Spain. Actually, Barceloneta is a small town on the northern coast of Puerto Rico, that has some of the cleanest water on the planet.
The water is so pure that four pharmaceutical companies produce billions of dollars worth of drugs in Barceloneta, every year.
All the Viagra consumed in North America (U.S., Canada and Mexico) comes from one factory in the town of Barceloneta.

The town has become quite prosperous, and Pfizer Pharmaceutical sponsors the Barones de Barceloneta baseball team. The Barones have brand new uniforms, a state-of-the-art stadium, and a dozen cheerleaders called “The Diamond Girls.”

The Barones even have a mascot – a twelve-foot African bush elephant.

In 2008, the Barones also had the most spectacular win/loss record in the history of the Puerto Rico Winter Baseball League, with a winning percentage of 85%.
On February 12, 2008, the Barones marched into Caguas to challenge Juan Bobo and his baseball team. The game lasted 628 innings – the longest game in baseball history.

    I remember reading JUAN BOBO stories in St. Rose of Lima school as a kid (Boston). Now he’s here as a grown-up! I’m enjoying this blog and the information is great.

    I didn’t know about Barceloneta, and all the pharmaceuticals in Puerto Rico.

    We used to read “Juan Bobo” stories in grade school. I like the adult version!

    What a spectacle – the Viagra baseball team from Barceloneta. With an elephant, no less.
