Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic

IBAF WORLD RANK: 13

With more than a 100 players with Major League Clubs, the Dominican Republic contributes the most players in Major League Baseball. Recently, the Dominican Republic National Team earned a spot in the 2011 IBAF Baseball World Cup by winning the 2010 Pan American Qualifying Tournament. However, the side failed to advance to the second round after a 3-4 record. The Dominican Republic has competed in both the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classic tournaments. In 2009, Ubaldo Jimenez set a new record for strikeouts by a starter during Round One against the Kingdom of the Netherlands when he struck out 10 batters over four innings in Team Dominica's 2-1 loss to the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Although the Dominican Republic was eliminated in Round One of the 2009 tournament, they finished 4th in 2006.
