IMMEDIATELY after learning that he was released by Bulacan, Pasig Pirates owner James Ong Machate posted a shout out on Marlou Aquino and encouraged the PBA legend to come home to Pasig and join the Pirates’ MPBL squad.
“Open message to Sir Marlou Aquino, former PBA star. Maybe it’s time to go home to Pasig. Open invitation,” wrote Machate in his Facebook account.
Aquino, the 6-foot-9, PBA legend, was not included in the line up of the Bulacan Kuyas and this was disclosed by newly-installed coach Britt Reroma.
Without Aquino in the line up, Bulacan tapped two additional ex-pros — Jason Melano and Jeric Canada — to join holdovers James Martinez, Chris Baluyot.
Pasig will be headed by ex-pros Leo Najorda, Boyet Bautista, former Letran stalwart Jonathan Aldave and Kojak Melegrito.
