Caribbean Commonalities and Traditions

At games in the Caribbean, the blur of flags and dancers, the roar of music and cheers, and the smells and tastes of local specialties combine to create a baseball experience unlike anything in the United States.

Generations pass on their passion, and spirited rivalries spring up at every level of play. Often, the neighborhood kid who makes it as a professional returns to play in the local winter league, giving back to the community that nurtured him. The result? Béisbol, in a uniquely Latin version of the game.
