College baseball star says successful immigrant father inspired him

Jake Anchia, a star catcher at Nova Southeastern University, is the son of Miguel Anchia, who came with his family from Cuba to Miami during the 1980 Mariel boatlift. Here, he worked his way up to become Hialeah fire chief before retiring in April 2017, taking one weekend off and then starting a new job as deputy fire chief in Miami Beach.
