Pro Baseball Players from the Dominican Republic

Current Pro Baseball Players from the Dominican Republic (MLB 2023)

Baseball Players, and athletes of all sports really, take pride in where they’re from. Whether it’s the state, city or as is common in major league baseball, their country – you always notice players wanting to rep their home area.

Fans tend to do the same thing. It’s always more fun to pull for a player when they’re from your home state (or even your hometown), especially when that player also happens to be playing on your favorite team.

With all that in mind, we went through and pulled every player’s home state (or country) on the 40-man rosters for each team.

There are 20 countries (other than the US) that are represented in the MLB.

We found 120 players from the Dominican Republic on major league rosters. It’s the most of any country outside the US and almost 40 more than the second most (Venezuela). After Venezuela, the next highest country has 23.

Here are the 120 guys representing the Dominican Republic on MLB Rosters at the start of the 2023 season including what town he’s from and what team he plays for.
