This resource provides you with:

★Two page biography of professional baseball player Orlando Cepeda

★Comprehension questions (10)

NOTE: Orlando Cepeda developed a dependence on drugs due to an injury and was arrested for drug possession and served time in prison. This information is included in the reading. If discussion of drug use or a drug charge is not something you feel comfortable doing, please do not purchase this resource!

I use this resource in my classes when we are reading Felipe Alou, as Felipe Alou and Orlando Cepeda were friends and teammates. This is a good reading to use in comparing and contrasting with Felipe Alou's life experiences.
