Wow...as of today, Dominican Republic has been guessed the least. That's really surprising to me. After the USA, that was the first country that i put.

Agreed. There are Dominicans all over the league. I'd be surprised if there was a team without at least one Dominican on its current roster.

I just checked the roster for my favorite team (the Mets) out of curiosity. Out of 25 players, 7 are Dominican. Wow. That's more than I thought.

Dominican Republic was my 1st guess after the USA as well. In defense of those who missed it though, I can't bring to mind any particularly famous current player that I know is from there, though. The main reason I guessed it was because of Sammy Sosa, but he's been retired for awhile now.

Jose Bautista, Adrian Beltre, Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz--though all are past their prime, that's two pretty good sluggers, one hall of famer and one borderline hall of famer. Don't forget Rafael Devers, starting 3B for the world champion Red Sox, or Luis Severino, who pitches for the Yankees. I could go on.

Though, to be fair, I did get those from looking at a list of current Dominican MLBers, not off the top of my head.

Venezuela surprised me, even more when I looked and saw there are currently 65 Venezuelan players in the league.

I can't believe I almost forgot Japan. USA, Dominican Republic, and Cuba were obvious, after that I just started guessing other countries in the Americas. Japan should have been obvious but I nearly forgot it for some reason (I actually guess Ireland before Japan, if you'll believe it).

Being a fan of the Big Red Machine of the 1970s made this a bit easier. Obviously you have the 3 major North American countries. Add the recent influx from Japan. That leaves 3 Latin countries. Tony Perez was from Cuba. Cesar Geronimo was from the Dominican Republic. And Dave Concepcion was from Venezuela. Thanks guys!

I'm actually surprised the number of players from Japan isn't higher. For awhile in the early 2000's, it was fashionable for just about every team to go and import someone from Japan, thanks to the success of Ichiro Suzuki.

"DR" should be accepted for Dominican Republic. It's a very common abbreviation used by Dominicans and non-Dominicans in the US.

Yeah, too many other things start with "Dr," so that's probably not going to happen. Same reason why quizzes on this site don't accept "LA" for Los Angeles.
