Pressestimmen

"[T]oday baseball reflects the American population as well as or better than any other sport or enterprise. In fact, with each year, more and more of our players come from foreign countries, particularly the great talent that has come from the Caribbe an and Latin America. At the start of the 2000 majorleague baseball season, 198 players, nearly 24 percent of all players on major league rosters, were born outside the fifty states. They represented sixteen different foreign countries and Puerto Rico." - Bud Selig, Commissioner of Baseball, from the Foreword
