There are eight flat screen televisions hanging in the palatial and spacious Cincinnati Reds clubhouse, seven of them usually tuned in to baseball games or football games on Saturdays and Sundays.
The eighth TV is directly in front of catcher Dioner Navarro's locker and it is always tuned in to a soccer match from somewhere around the world.
And Navarro sits in front of his locker wearing a red soccer jersey with his baseball number, 30, on the back under his nickname, 'Navi,' which he wears under his baseball jersey during games.
Does he like soccer?
"No, I love it," he said. "I'm a humongous fan. Did I play it? Never. Too much running. I just like watching all that running they do because I can't run. My father always had the Spanish games on TV and I became a huge Barcelona fan."
As a catcher, Navarro isn't much required to use his legs and he gets to use his hands to swing a potent baseball bat.
Navarro is one of the more fortuitous acquisitions made this season by general...
