    Congrats HB! Here it is in print - I liked 'El Salón de la Fama del Deporte de Santiago (SAFADESA) exaltará a la inmortalidad un total de 6 ex atletas y dirigentes de esta ciudad, en su V ceremonial' (emboldening mine)

    Anuncia exaltación el domingo de seis ex atletas y dirigentes

    If the immortality bit is correct, HB will be with us forever!

    And don't forget his other great contributions as a teacher. I found this on You Tube

    Default Congratulations HB

    Congratulations HB...I had the pleasure of meeting you recently. You have a great hospitality for people (even if they do just show up on your doorstep). It looks as if you have a long history for the sports in the DR & your award is well earned.
