BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela | Venezuelan baseball fans mourn death of ex-major leaguers
BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela — Dozens of Venezuelans have been waiting in lines outside a chapel in the state of Lara to bid farewell to former major league baseball player Luis Valbuena, who was killed in a car accident along with teammate Jose Castillo.
The corpse of Castillo was moved earlier Saturday to a different central-west state.
The 33-year-old Valbuena and 37-year-old Castillo were both former players for the Houston Astros.
They died late Thursday when their SUV crashed as it tried to avoid an object put on the road.
