The opportunity I got to play baseball in the Dominican Republic was an experience I will never forget.
It amazed me to see how important baseball was to each player. No one playing there didn’t want to be there. Everybody who was playing enjoyed every moment and was serious about the game.
My team played against kids living in poverty, but their attitude and spirit overshadowed any economic differences. Driving through the countryside was also a great experience with green everywhere you look.
Isaias was extremely kind and was the perfect guy to host this trip because he cares about everybody he interacts with. Elvis, Timo and Pedro, our Dominican guides, were extremely welcoming. I got their numbers and still communicate with them.
