List of americans that have played in the Dominican Winter League... NOT INCLUDING MEXICO, VENEZUELA, PUERTO RICO. Only Dominican Republic. If you include those other three countries the list grow greatly.
At first I wanted to make a list of Texas Rangers only, but it is too complicated...
(This is NOT A COMPLETE LIST..and I know I am missing many more including some MLB Hall of Famers. For example Willie Mays and Roger Maris played for the "Estrellas Orientales" team here, but I cannot find a full roster year by year from that team, that same thing happen for other teams...)
I am not including all the cubans stars that have played in DR nor players from Panama, this is an all american list.
Year by year some 40 americans played in DR. Some of them played for more than one season like Charlie Hough that played for several reason and is second in all time saves or Eric Byrnes that have come 4 times.
Alonzo Perry (played in negro league, a Homer Machine...never played in MLB)
Cool Papa Bell
Josh Gibson (The Black Babe Ruth)
Hal King (played in TEXAS)
Mark McGwire (He came as a 3B and released a month later, was replaced by Kelly Gruber)
Mike Piazza (didnt played but was like a bullpen catcher a season)
(I did not include Alex Rodriguez because in Dominican Republic he played as he legally is here DOMINICAN)
Charlie Hough (played in TEXAS)
Charlie Hough (played many years is second in all time saves / played in TEXAS)
