  • Why do only Dominicans get caught lying about their name and age?

    What about players from other Latin countries that produce MLBers (Venezuela, Colombia, Panama)?
    Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

    If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

    NOT TRUE
    out of ALL the players that come from DR
    that is less than 1%

    it happens because a person is born in one place
    say a home and has no record of birth
    or is born in a hospital and get a written record of birth
    then the parents have to spent money to travel to the the city or area court
    where the records are made by hand and kept
    and PAY a fee in order to get a birth certificate
    that is money that most people don't have so they don't bother with it

    before a player is sign he must have a birth certificate to prove his age
    so the local dominican scouts/agent/seeker(buscones) do what they have to
    in order to get that player the most money
    MLB teams give out more money to a younger player than an older one
    so if it means saying the player is 18 instead of 21 so be it
    that a heck of alot more money for the player and buscones

    this happens in ALL latin american countries
    who know how old livan hernadez from cuba is
    or fernando venezuela from mexico

    Puerto Rico is not a country, it is under U.S laws,system
    so it does not happen there

    It is the common saying
    you don't hear about the few
    but you do hear about the many
    there are so many players from DR
    compare to other countries
    that when someone get caught chances are
    he is a dominican
