Daddy Yankee is getting’ in the game…
The 45-year-old Puerto Rican rapper, singer and songwriter has become a co-owner of the Puerto Rican baseball team Los Cangrejeros de Santurce.
The reggaeton superstar, born Ramón Luis Ayala Rodríguez, is also an investor and will be joining Chairman Thomas Axon and President Justo Moreno as owners of the San Juan-based team, which hosts its home games at the Hiram Bithorn Stadium.
For Yankee, who was raised in Santurce, this new career move hits home.
“I know what it means to a kid, I’m a product of the little league and grew up going to the Cangrejeros games at the Hiram Bithorn,” he tells Billboard. “ I’m part of something that I’m really passionate about and that’s baseball.”
