Kendry Morales #8 of the Los Angeles Angels celebrates his grand slam homerun to win the game 5-1 over the Seattle Mariners during the bottom of the ninth inning at Angel Stadium on May 29, 2010 in Anaheim, California. Like many other Cuban stars, Morales defected from Cuba to the Dominican Republic. Impressed by Morales' hitting power, private scouts for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim scooped him up and signed him to a six-year deal in 2004. It took Morales 11 attempts before he finally defected from Cuba successfully.
