Legions of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz fans will come to Jamestown from all over.

“They are happy playing here.” Perez Garcia hopes to find similar happiness for him and his wife and two sons after turning down offers from three big Argentine clubs. The attacking midfielder for Club Atletico Tigre had the chance to join Buenos Aires-area teams Independiente, Racing FC or River Plate. “In the end we wanted to come to here for security,” he said at Levi’s Stadium, where the Quakes will play Seattle on Saturday night. “For me, family is very important. I prioritize that over things in my life.” His wife Carla, and sons Joaquin, 5, and Benjamin, 2, joined Perez Garcia on Friday. The Quakes signed the playmaker to a multi-year deal that included playing Tigre a $2 million transfer fee, according to reports in Argentina. MLS does not disclose contracts.
