Baseball - Santo Domingo Dominica

(120203) -- SANTO DOMINGO, Feb. 3, 2012 (Xinhua) -- A boy participates in a baseball practice in a park, in Santo Domingo, capital of Dominican Republic, on Feb. 3, 2012. A large number of young people, aged between 8 and 16 years old, train every day in parks known as Plays, to improve their baseball skills. For these young people and their families, baseball is an opportunity to escape poverty. Some Major League Baseball (MLB) teams, such as Kansas City and Los Angeles Dodgers, have schools to recruit people who might have success in their teams. A 16-year-old Dominican baseball player could get to sign a two million dollars contract with one of the teams, although it doesn't guarantee a career in the MLB. (Xinhua/Pedro Mera) (de)
