Jay Z


I started playing Jai Alai with all the Newport boys. We all played at a place called the Mini. Then we all played Friday afternoons at Newport Jai Alai with the late Marshall and Billy Clark as our teachers. I worked at Newport Jai Alai for 10 years, '86 to '96. I love all the people I met through Jai Alai. I made some friends for life.
