A Well Deserved Championship for the Dominican Republic

Mitchell, Lincoln A.

Many times when people from Europe or other non-baseball playing countries have commented how strange it is that Americans love baseball while "the rest of the world plays soccer," I have tried to explain that many countries play baseball. After listing off the countries where baseball is popular, I usually conclude by telling people that the country with the best baseball in the world is not the U.S., but the Dominican Republic.
