This could be a blessing in disguise.
Do you guys know how many kids that could be studying instead spend their times trying to get accepted in the training camps? How many, once accepted, are trying to get signed? How many, once signed, actually make it to the MLB?
Too many kids are drooling over a dream that for most of them will remain nothing but a dream, sooner or later a shattered dream. Then what?
No education, shattered ego, lost of something to aspire to.... can we say rise in crime?
Most of those kids should focus on a more realistic goal and this cooling of the Dominican baseball frenzy can be just what's needed.
I have never been convinced that this baseball frenzy has been good for the country. Personally, I think it creates problems leaving hundreds, perhaps thousands of kids and young adults in utter failure and with no future while two or three folks make it big.
