Red Sox-Yankees series features many foreign players

The Red Sox versus Yankees series that took place last week featured 14 foreign born players out of the 50 players on the two teams active and reserve rosters.  The Yankees have six Dominicans, including Rafael Soriano and Robinson Cano.  The Red Sox have just one, David Ortiz.

The two biggest clubs in baseball are always interested in signing a top flight talent, no matter what the cost or country of origin.  The Yankees have featured a number of Dominicans throughout the years, such as Alfonso Soriano and Alex Rodriguez.  The Red Sox championship teams in the 2004 and 2007 of course had two of the best players of their generation in David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez, as well as Pedro Martinez among others.

Alfonso Soriano and Cano are both from San Pedro de Macoris, and Ortiz and Ramirez are both from Santo Domingo.  Fans of the Yankees and Red Sox should enjoy this series and enjoy seeing all the great Dominicans play all year.
