“Nothing really, but I do enjoy watching the fights, I know there is a lot of people that follow hockey, but I don’t know much about it” said Carerra through a translator.
Carrera will also drop the puck before the game tonight.
“About six years ago I was at a hockey game, but this is the first time that I’ve been a guest here, and I’m going to enjoy this very much, this is a special time” added Carrera.
After a successful last few seasons the Blue Jays have been also referred to as “Canada’s team” something Carrera says is an honour to hear.
“For me it is very special and an honour that when I come out of Toronto and see how people appreciate and love the sport and the team” Carrera said.
