THE WORLD SERIES OF WINTER BALL: CARIBBEAN SERIES
dominicans2.jpg
THE DOMINICANS OFTEN FARE WELL IN THE ANNUAL EVENT

“I loved the way you described Dominican baseball…it really hit every aspect of Dominican ball. Being a Dominican myself I'm really proud and full of pride of my country's baseball history and culture. THX for letting the world know how important baseball is for us and how baseball is in the Dominican everyday life! I'm really looking forward to reading some of the other countries baseball traditions and guides!! Great stuff!” – Ariel, Dominican Republic

 

“Have read your contribution about Venezuela, I think it is good, quite all your information is true and sticks to reality.” – Adriano, Venezuela

 

“Remember you told me how to get cheap tickets?? I did exactly what you told me and it worked out perfectly. I was checking your website and you have amazing pictures, I like those from Mazatlan. – Vin, Aguascalientes, Mexico

 

Thought the World Baseball Classic was fun? Well, every February, the best professional winter league team from the individual leagues in the La Republica Dominicana; South of the Border, Down Mexico Way; Viva Venezuela; and Puerto Rico: Isla De Encanto (The Enchanted Island) compete for the title of Caribbean Series champion, and it's a fun, fun, fun event! Who knows? Perhaps in the near future we could also see Nicaraguan Vulcans and Colombian Iguanas in the series!
 
The site of the annual Latin baseball celebration rotates every year. The Dominican Republic has had the most success in the recent era of the series. Before Fidel Castro came to power and banned professional baseball, Castro's Cuba: The Forbidden Island had achieved the most success at the series while Panama's Passion was also displayed in the event long, long ago.
 
You can learn more about baseball in Latin America in World in a Ballpark: Baseball Goes Global, which is available for purchase at the Buy Joe's Guides page.

The Dominican Republic captured the title in 2012, 2010, 2008 and 2007. Venezuela won the series in 2009 and 2006, and Mexico was the champion in 2013, 2011 and 2005. Puerto Rico hasn't won since 1995, and hosted the 2011 Caribbean Series in Mayaguez. Puerto Rico hosts the 2015 Caribbean Series. Learn more about it and to plan your trip there with "A Fan's Guide To The World Baseball Classic," with information on the annual Caribbean Series and each participant, available at the Buy Joe's Guides. The series is always a week-long event taking place the first week of February. We hope you enjoy this baseball collage, Latin style!
