FROM THE BATTER’S BOX
Roberto Suarez has been luckier holding jobs than holding on to women. He is 44 years old and has been married 5 times, on the contrary he has held just 3 steady jobs.
Founder of the distillery of San Jose de las Lajas where Havana Club 7 is made, he was involved with it even before it opened in 2007. Today he holds the post of bottling shift team leader. It is in the bottling section where the very last touch to the product is given thus its significance “because the eyes are the first catcher of our pitch”, confesses Roberto, using his baseball jargon. His superiors and colleagues consider him a major “asset” because of his commitment and passion.
Roberto enjoys spending his free time with his family especially when his is with his children. As the good Cuban that he is, he loves baseball, he is a complete fan of Cuba’s national sport. Which he enjoys by either playing it himself or by watching it.
A real proud father on weekends what he enjoys the most is watching his youngest son train with his team.
