Ah... BS... LOL

No BS... Tout bon wi!

Until the late 1980s, Major league baseballs were made in Haiti until Rawlings, the official supplier of baseballs to the major leagues, moved its facility from Haiti to Costa Rica.

Now it looks like Haiti will soon be recognized as a manufacturer of Baseball players

WOW... It will be fun eating Griot ak Bannan Peze instead of hot dogs at a baseball game for a change! LOL...

Instead of summarizing everything I've read so far about the new Haitian Baseball and Softball Association, let me share with you 3 sources where you can get more information:

  1. AHBS, The Haitian Baseball and Softball Association launches Baseball in Haiti (Le Matin) - This article talks about the official launch of the Haitian Baseball Association and the exhibition games that took place on November 17, the day of the lauhnch and all the new Baseball clubs already put together since.
  2. Haitian Baseball Association Launches (defend.ht) - In that article Defent.ht said that there are "no current professional baseball players from Haiti."
  3. There are Many Professional Baseball Players born in Haiti (Sakapfet.com) - I had no idea but a commentator on Sakapet.com's forum flatly reject the statement that there are professional baseball players from Haiti. He provided a surprising list of 13 Minor League Basebal players born in Haiti... Wow... I didn't know...

Se gro kose wi... You learn something new everyday...

  • What do you think about Baseball in Haiti?
  • How long do you think it will take to pick up?
  • You think Haitians will eventually jump for joy when the New York Yankees win the World Series?

That's some awesome news, yes I think that there are a lot of Haitian's playing Baseball, I couldn't tell you any one famous but the game is large and it is spreaded all over the US. I think Haiti will be a good location for baseball and these new clubs should do well.

Baseball does not require a lot of equipment and if you have a stick (Bat), any kind of Ball you have a game. Who needs bases, you can use what ever you have laying around to be the bases (Like we did back in the day).
