"I saw the opportunity to ask for a hug," Dotel said after the team returned to its Baltimore hotel. "He said, 'Of course.' that was really nice of him. He knows a lot about us. He noticed that we've been playing well lately. He's a big fan. I can tell he really enjoyed (the visit)." But not as much as Dotel, a native of the Dominican Republic. "It was like I won the World Series," Dotel said. "I was nervous and sweating. But it was a great moment, I'm telling you."
