Congratulatory messages rolled in after Mexico’s remarkable victory in the World Baseball Classic against Puerto Rico.
None other than Daddy Yankee sent a message to celebrate Mexico’s progression to the semi-finals of the tournament.

MLB Mexico’s response to Daddy Yankee
Among the many responses to the “King of Reggaeton” was one from the MLB Mexico’s official Instagram account, which posted:
“You’re great! It was a great game, but in the end, we are all Latinos who love baseball. All recognition to the Puerto Rican brothers,” reads the publication.
Daddy Yankee hung out with Randy Arozarena
The singer published his exclusive pre-match experiences via his Instagram stories where he shared footage of himself conversing with some of the players.
The Puerto Rican singer was seen chatting away with Randy Arozarena, the Cuban-Mexican who starred in the game’s most significant moment – his catch which prevented the Puerto Ricans from tying the game.
Mexico advanced for the first time in history to the World Baseball Classic semi-finals in style, recovering from a 0-4 deficit to win 5-4 against Puerto Rico, finalists in the last two editions.
Mexico will face Japan in the semi-finals, one of only two teams to finish the group stage undefeated.
