Notable Electric Guitarist Yngwie Malsteem to Sign Autographs,
Throw Out First Pitch and Perform National Anthem
On August 6, Baker Concrete Marlins Super Saturday will feature a pregame autograph session, first pitch and National Anthem performance by one of rockâ€™s premier virtuoso electric guitarists and Hollywood Rock Wall of Famer Yngwie Malsteem followed by a post-game salsa performance by the legendary Gilberto Santa Rosa. First pitch versus the St. Louis Cardinals is set for 7:10 p.m. Plus, the first 10,000 fans will receive a Logan Morrison Baseball Cap courtesy of Preferred Care Partners.
Gilberto Santa Rosa is part of the select few artists recognized by Billboard Magazine as an artist of the decade. A celebrated musician for more than 30 years, â€œEl Caballero de la Salsa,â€ is one of the most prominent singers of tropical music. Puerto Rican Santa Rosa developed a unique style of “soneo” (improvisation) in salsa that has gained him success in both “tropical” and “romantic” styles of the music. In the 1980s, Santa Rosa formed his own band and released a number of hits, including “Good Vibration,â€ “De Amor y Salsa” (Of Love and Salsa), “Punto de Vista” (Point of View), “Vivir Sin Ella” (Living without Her) and “Perspectiva.” In 1990, Santa Rosa was awarded the Billboard Lo Nuestro Award for Best Male Singer. Santa Rosa’s hits continued with the albums “Expresion” and “Romantico.” He released “Viceversa” in 2002 and then a joint live album with VÃctor Manuelle, “Dos Soneros, Una Historia,” three years later. In 2006, he released, “Directo Al Corazon,” and in 2007 he released Contraste which received Gold and Platinum certification.
