Major League ball players come mostly from the province of Santo Domingo

In its initial years, San Pedro de Macorís province made a name for itself as the cradle of Dominican ball players – boasting such famous players as Rico Carty, George Bell, Pedro Guerrero and Sammy Sosa, among others.

Today, however, the many baseball academies in the province of Santo Domingo are attracting a lot of young talent from around metro area. So it might come as a surprise that, as reported in Diario Libre, the province  of Santo Domingo leads the way in the number of MLB players from the Dominican Republic.

The top 10 provinces where professional baseball players were born are:
Santo Domingo, 186; San Pedro de Macoris, 104; San Cristóbal: 68; Santiago, 50; Peravia (Baní) 35; La Romana 26; Montecristi 23; Puerto Plata, 17; Duarte (San Francisco de Macorís) 16; and Azua 15.
