    The first 100 per cent filipino pro player, who pitched for the Cincinnati Cubans in 1921 (Negro National League), Almendares in Cuba in the Winter League, and in the minors in 1922. There have been a couple of full blooded filipinos in the Majors, and a few of Filipino origin.

    If you follow this link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/buchbi...ere-regensburg you'll be able to watch home games of the Regensburg Legionaeres that they are showing on Ustream. The call is in German, but the video quality is equal to some of the indy leagues I've seen online broadcasts of.

    Thanks for the info. It's a shame there is no website for it.
    Here's hoping I get lucky while I am over there, even if it's just a local league in Surabaya.

    Caribeños in MLB

    Some 1,308 ballplayers ( until May 5 , 2007 ) from the Caribbean had shown their skills in the Majors . They represent 15 different countries . Here is the breakdown :

    Aruba 4
    Bahamas 5
    Belize 1
    Colombia 8
    Cuba 199
    Curazao 6
    Dominican Rep 454
    Honduras 1
    Jamaica 3
    México 109
    Nicaragüa 9
    Panama 48
    Puerto Rico 263
    Venezuela 203
    Virgin Is.(USA) 11
    The total for these numbers is 1,324 . The reason why we state that they are 1,308 is that 16 of these players are located in two different countries .
    For example : Aurelio Monteagudo is in Cuba's list because that's where he was born . But while playing in Venezuela , he married a venezuelan lady and stayed there until his death . Researchers from Venezuela always place Aurelio on their lists .
    Another Example : Eduardo Pérez was born in Cincinnati . He is an american , indeed . But he is the son of Tany ( Tony ) Pérez from Cuba and cuban analists place Ed on Cuba's list . But he grew up and played bb in Puerto Rico , so he ( and everybody else in PR ) understands he is puertorrican .
    Like these two examples there are 14 other players on two different lists .

    Caribeños in the Majors

    Until May 5 of this year , some 1,308 caribeños from 15 different countries of our region had done a Major League uniform . This number is not absolute . It is the number i came up with in my own research ( 12 years , now ) . It can and will vary accordingly to the definition of caribeños being used by the different researchers in the theme , to the point of view of different countries , and of course , with the difficulty in the investigation of many old ballplayers that were born in the USA that could be linked to Caribbean origin . The main example are the many players from the South-West area
    ( California , Texas , et al ) who played in the late 1800's and early 1900's .
    There are countries with a big contribution to the game like the Dominican Republic with some 454 players , Puerto Rico 263 , Cuba and Venezuela with numbers in the 200 , México with over a hundred , and countries like Honduras and Belize with only one big leaguer . Another factor - for some people - is as to what we understand is a major league ( i'm walking over fire , here ) .
    In my research i based my findings in the following factors :
    1 ) a caribeño is a person being born in any of the different countries in the caribbean basin , including the Greater and Lesser Antilles , Central América , the north part of South América , and México which is in North América .
    2 ) also the children of any person born in the region .
    3 ) also the grandchildren .
    4 ) it can be also , a person who becomes a citizen of any of these countries via marriage , or any other reason , or that moved to one of the countries very young and grew up there .
    This can be a very touchy subject , but i been trying to work it up , because i understand it is neccesary .
    I will deal with the history , the development , stats , and some other info .

    This is a nice site with a lot of information about the Dutch leagues (baseball and softball) during the season. It also reports about the Dutch National Team when it plays.

    Not flashy, but good info.
