HASH(0xa501c6f0) out of 5 stars This Documentary is perfect, touchs my heart Oct. 10 2010
By D. Herasme - Published on
Format: DVD
This is a great documentary. I really loved it. I used to play baseball in Dominica Republic but stopped playing, which I will regret for ever. If you are a fan of baseball and think those guys make too much money, watch this documentary. Oh man, I loved this. I love baseball with passion. I wish the day I go to heaven I play baseball for ever. The story that made me the saddest, is the one about Rafael Furcal's cousin. That just breaks my heart. Let me not spoil it for you.

Get it and enjoy it.

HASH(0xa501c7c8) out of 5 stars Very real and very interesting June 4 2010

We've all heard about how many good ballplayers come from the Dominican. Here's an inside look at what it's like to be a kid with a chance to make it. It was very real and very interesting. The stories from Vlad Guerrero and David Ortiz were good, especially Big Papi's hilarious description of what they used in place of a ball for stickball - and how they got it. I highly recommend this film.

HASH(0xa501cc00) out of 5 stars Excellent behind the scenes look May 26 2013
By Debra A. Cassidy - Published on
Players from the Dominican Republic looking to rise out of poverty and help their families. Features a pair of players in their quest to make it to the majors. Also looks at the origins of such all-stars as David Ortiz and Vladimir Guerrero.
HASH(0xa501cb7c) out of 5 stars Baseball lottery Feb. 8 2014

Format: DVD
Similar to Ballplayer: Pelotero [HD] (mostly in Spanish with subtitles) tells stories of youth in Domiinican Republic who aspire to leave the povery of the island for the $ of the United States. Made by a guy from Boston David Ortiz Boston Red Sox (Baseball Card) 2004 Topps #623 is featured as what the boys aspire to become as they go to tryouts, they just do not seem to perform well in front of scouts.

1997 Upper Deck # 271 Vladimir Guerreo -- -- Baseball Card appears and works out hitting, then walks home to his estate. One aspiring player profiled lied about his age so he can not be signed. One player does sign for $25K.

Extras include an interview with the director and a piece about the happenings at the stadium there on game day.
HASH(0xa52610cc) out of 5 stars Endless Hope May 19 2013

I liked all of the boys and their cheerful determination to make it to the big show and improve life for themselves and their families. It is sad, however, to realize that very few will succeed. Their incredible baseball talent won't take them to a college for a degree to fall back on and succeed in a career. This story reminds me of "Hoop Dreams". In very few cases will there be a happy ending.
