Failed Marriage of Victor

Lourdes was a straight-headed woman. She did not care if she was divorced again.
After getting divorced, Victor moved out of the house, leaving his two kids behind.
Strange Relationship with his Son
After getting a divorce and leaving his family and hometown behind, Victor never returned.
He never provided for his children. Alex, who was just a tiny kid, was waiting for his father, but he never returned.
Alex's whole family knew that his parents were getting a divorce except him. His mother did not want to break his heart.
Alex has shared in many interviews that he waited every day for his dad, but he never came back.
He would usually get upset because his teammates' dads were always present at their matches to support them.
Alex was emerged as a talented high school player and was drafted by the Seattle Mariners.
This news was published in the newspaper. Victor saw this news contacted his son after eight years.
He reached the same week and congratulated him. Alex said that he was not much impressed by his father's call.
Next year when Alex had been sent down to the Dominican Republic to play in its winter baseball league, Victor showed up at the batting practice.
Alex could not recognize his dad after so many years, and when his dad told him who he was, he almost broke down and cried.
They exchanged few conversations and decided to meet the very next day for lunch. Later his son decided to cancel the lunch appointment.
He felt guilty and remorse for canceling the lunch appointment.
He later arranged to have a satellite television disk delivered to his estranged father's house so that he could watch his son's match.
Victor's relationship with his son has been pretty terrible. Not much has been revealed about his relationship with Alex now.
