Reunited at Last

The pieces are finally coming together for Reds closing pitcher Aroldis Chapman. Originally from Cuba, Chapman left his home country to pursue a career in the MLB. Nearly five years later, his personal and professional lives have aligned.

According to, between last year and the most recent off season, Chapman’s parents, ex-girlfriend, and four-year-old daughter, who he has never met, have successfully gained freedom from Marxist Cuba and have moved to Chapman’s home in South Florida.

While Chapman and Ashanti, his daughter, have some catching up to do. Chapman hopes that once Ashanti grows up, she will understand the sacrifices he had to make during her early years.

According to, Chapman said, “I could not ask for anything more to how my life is right now, I have all of the members of my family with me. That is all I need.”

With his family in place, Chapman is ready to take on the 2014 season without any regrets or worries.
