2023 WORLD BASEBALL CLASSIC
Who is Duque Hebbert? How much will he earn at the Detroit Tigers?
The World Baseball Classic just gave us one of the most exciting tournament moments in the form of Duque Hebbert.
Even though team Nicaragua lost to the Dominican Republic at the World Baseball Classic, it is not all bad news. The world of baseball sits in awe of Duque Hebbert as he pulled off what could be the tournament’s most exciting moment so far.
MLB stars Juan Soto, Julio Rodriguez, and Rafael Devers were all struck out by the 21-year-old. During the last inning of the game, the five-foot-nine stared into the eyes of some of the best players in the league and took them out like a hot knife to butter. His team still lost 6-1, but the player left with a contract from the Detroit Tigers as soon as the game ended. The thing movies are made of.

Scout Luis Molina offered the pitcher a minor-league contract with the team as he caught up to the player at the parking lot before getting on the team bus.
The news that Duque had signed with the Tigers came from the Nicaraguan Athletics Federation. The team’s press officer Carlos Alfaro announced that the pitcher had signed with Detroit. He also claimed that the news was announced on the team’s bus in front of the whole team.
Team Nicaragua manager Sandor Guido said that Hebbert “showed what he is made of.”
“When you have will, when you have heart, you can do very good things,” the Nicaraguan said after the match.
