Dominicans in 2010 World Series

So we are down to the final two teams and the 2010 World Series of baseball.  Interestingly, the Rangers and the Giants are two of the teams with the most Dominicans on their rosters.  Here is the breakdown of Dominicans in the World Series:

Rangers: Neftali Feliz, Alexi Ogando, Nelson Cruz, Julio Borbon, Valdimir Guerrero
Giants: Santiago Castillo, Guillermo Mota, Ramon Ramirez, Juan Uribe

Ogando and Mota are both from San Pedro de Macoris, leaving this city with the only one represented by more than one player in the World Series this year.  Quite an accomplishment for a city of 200,000 people.  By far the most big leaguers per capita of any city in the world, with at least several dozen playing in the majors this season.  Series starts Wednesday, so we will see how these Dominican players fair on the biggest stage in baseball.
