Jair Bogaerts is an eye-catching look at Hoofddorp Pioniers’ pick. Thanks to coach Mervin Gario, the baseball player is playing for the Hoofdorpers. They have known each other since childhood when they were living in Aruba.
“In Aruba they always came to see me. Then they said they wanted to be just like me. I told them they had to get better than me,” an emotional Garrillo said about Jair and Zander Bogarts.
“I told them to get better at me”
The highest wage for a Dutch athlete
Jair Bogarts is the twin brother of Xander Bogaerts, who plays for the Boston Red Sox in the US. The baseball player is the highest paid Dutch player with an estimated net worth of € 156 million. “I am a proud brother,” says Jair Bogarts. “We are in touch every day. He will also watch today’s match because I sent him the link.”
The Pioneers today lost their first game of the season 6-4 to Dutch champion Amsterdam Pirates.
