    But the greatest Dominican of all was Juan Marichal... the greatest pitcher ever from the DR. As a little boy growing up in Sacramento California I got to see him in action many times at old Candlestick Park. He was my hero along with Willie Mays and I had the great privilege of seeing both of them play in their primes.... now the torch is passed to the greatest world series pitcher of all time.... Mad Bum..... Go Giantssssssssssss..... Goooo Raiderssssssssss

    I agree, and if a Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier a decade earlier, there would have been other famous Dominican players.   Guayubin Olivo was famous in DR before pitching in US, I think he was over 40 by then. His brother Chi-Chi too.

    That is very true and what about all the Cuban players from 1960 on that never got a chance.

    Pedro's book was very good.

Since moving to South Carolina in 2013 have not been to the Ball Park since,but planning a trip to go to Baltimore during the summer We will visit both the Capital and catch the BOSOX at Camden Yards.

    There was a documentary done on Luis Tiant's return to Cuba for the first time since he left. They discuss some of the Cuban players before him.

    His tantrums within the diamond gave it up long ago.

    Cool no problem. I've had the package for years. Not from a cable/satellite provider but from MLB-TV. It's only like $120 per season. It's God's gift to baseball fans. Home and away broadcasts, watch, pause and play when you want. No blackouts, which is excellent for people here in the DR.
