Not only he is a marvelous writer and a baseball player he also has a great taste when it comes to women. Behind a great man stands a phenomenal woman. Miguel Batista's love of his life lives in Arizona. I had the opportunity of meeting her. They were at the David Copperfield Magic Show 2007. Just like Miguel, she was confident, intelligent, classy, uniquely gorgeous, alluring, enchanting and something about her that was so mesmerizing! She spoke to my daughters. My daughters thought that she was an angel.She was tiny, caramel skin tone, beautiful tantalizing eyes, long silky highlighted hair, the whitest teeth I've ever seen and the most amazing radiant smile! They could not stop talking about her. I applaud Mr. Batista for his taste of woman. I introduced myself and my family to him and his girlfriend. His girlfriend has an amazing and yet fitting name, Taj Mahal. They both were wonderful and down to earth. His girlfriend even teased my daughters and they absolutely thought she was funny! They looked perfect and very at peace with each other. They kept starring at each other and smiled often, you can just feel the love between the beautiful couple. The reason why I am writing this is to show how much that moment meant to me and my wife. We were in a verge of divorce. By seeing Miguel Batista and his girlfriend Taj Mahal that night at the magic show and how much they were so in love with each other made me realized how valuable my marriage was and it brought back memories of how I used to be in love with my wife. That was indeed magical with every sense of the word. I guess, at some point, some of us need some positive reminders to appreciate the most valuable person / people in our lives. They saved my marriage and I am forever grateful to both of them. It was indeed a magical night! More power to Miguel Batista and Taj Mahal. Now my daughters love watching baseball with me and they are his solid fans! Not only they saved my marriage, but it is stronger than ever. I am bonding with my daughters too, I never thought I would be watching the Mariners games with them. I live here in Phoenix. I love the DBacks, since Miguel and Taj made a huge impact in our lives, WE Love the Mariners as well.
