“I appreciate the efforts Rawlings has made in Turrialba to postpone this decision as much as possible and to keep other jobs for the Turrialba area. I hope that after the pandemic sports activity returns and the company can re-employ these people who today had to dismiss with pain,” said Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC) legislator, Laura Guido Pérez, who is from Turrialba.

MLB baseballs — which are produced by Rawlings in Costa Rica, at its plant located 1 km south of the center of Turrialba.
