Caribbean Series Pairings Almost Set
Things are gearing up for the 50th anniversary of the Caribbean Series, as each league—the Mexican Pacific League, the Dominican League and the Venezuelan League—are all currently in the finals.
Tejada Leads Dominicans To 2007 Caribbean Title
With his theatrics on the mound and flamboyant style, righthander Jose Lima embodies a number of characteristics of Latin American baseball. Of course, it didn't hurt that he was at the center of most 2007 Caribbean Series storylines. It was shortstop Miguel Tejada (Orioles), however, whose play contributed most heavily to the Dominican Republic's Caribbean Series championship, reinforcing his stature as the heart and soul of Dominican baseball.
