Bolivar and World Jai Alai

Posted on September 2, 2009 at 10:56:08 PM by CTguy

When people here talk about how bad things have gotten in Miami, they sometimes talk about it as the Showplace of Jai Alai, or the Yankee Stadium of Jai Alai. Clearly Miami was the No. 1 fronton for a long time.

So I was wondering, when Bolivar was with World Jai Alai, why did he play at Tampa and not Miami? Was it to give Tampa a drawing card? Even if that was the case, it seems strange that with Joey, Uriarte, Remen, Asis, Mendi, Zulaica, etc. at Miami, the talent was poorly split.

Does anyone know why no Bolivar in Miami?
