The Dominican Republic Baseball Tour Report

The 2018 Dominican Republic Baseball Tour Report

...plus, details on our upcoming Summer 2019 Trip now taking reservations!

Hooboy! ...did those 8 days go by fast or what! It was a blur of sugar sand beaches in a tropical setting and the smiles of young island ballplayers on fields of dreams — thrilled to be competing with our own talented U.S. youths — a lasting memory one can never forget!

28 very lucky boys found themselves competing "3469 Km" away from "Fenway Park" against some of the best young baseball players the Dominican Republic could offer. And, yes, that's the same Dominican Republic that sends more professional ballplayers to Major League Baseball than any other foreign country. So, as you might imagine, our guys met up with some pretty stiff competition.

Parents also got a close-up view of an innovative and colorful culture while cheering their boys on, making new friends, and creating lasting memories with their children.

“Experiencing the culture of the DR was the main reason we signed up for this tour. I cannot express how thrilled we are to have had this opportunity! says Nancy N., one of the mothers accompanying her son on the trip.

Fenway Which Way

We're a long ways from home, Mom!

"Seeing first hand the poverty of the local teams truly touched my son that he wanted to give away all of his baseball equipment while we were there.”

Nancy goes on to say, “He enjoyed communicating with the local children and especially playing with them on the All-star team! My son formed lasting friendships with many of the boys on the tour who share his competitive spirit and love for the game.”

Coaches

The Coaches Are Ready to Play Ball

Coach Myers was pretty excited about how well things went.

“The trip was a huge success. The coordination and organization were terrific thanks in part to Legacy Global Sports and US Sports Camps. The food, accommodations and competition were all first class. It was great to watch our boys learn so much in such a short time. And the cultural exchange was priceless! I'm already looking forward to going again next year.”

Our son had a wonderful time meeting and playing with talented young players from all over the USA against well coached, up and coming talent from the D.R. Highly Recommended!"

"We LOVEDDD everything about the tour especially the all inclusive resort!", according to parent, Sudia M. who added, "Anaan also enjoyed all the boys he got to play with and met from all over the US. He also enjoyed the game where they got to play alongside the boys from the DR...that was fun too!!

Sudia went on to say, "I also loved the fact the resort was very kid friendly and had activities for kids which kept them occupied! We totally enjoyed the food and adult activities as well that the resort offered!!"

Another parent, Ben E. commented, "Great experience for the players and parents. A truly high level baseball challenge against great, tough players. Excellent, professional level coaching. The players get to see kids coming from the barrios and fighting hard to achieve their dreams. I recommend only for serious, experienced players wanting to test themselves against the best. Fantastic multicultural experience too."
