Game 1 of the AL Division Series gets underway Friday in Boston, with the Red Sox taking on the New York Yankees. People in Puerto Rico can't wait, because Boston's rookie manager Alex Cora is already something of a legend on the island.

WBUR's Simón Ríos (@simonfrios) traveled to Cora's hometown to hear about how the team's success is helping offset frustrations with the recovery from last year's hurricanes.

This segment aired on October 5, 2018.
