"So people always ask me all the time how is that the Dominican, a little tiny country, can produce players? Well it's their game, too. And they and maybe in a way now with the way football and other sports have you know inserted themselves in our culture, I think in the Dominican baseball there's a purity to the game and a purity the love for the game that is reminiscent of the way the United States was in the forties and the fifties. It's still that way in the Dominican. And I think that's what drives the whole machine."
