Great baseball experiences, fabulous food and some History & culture mixed in. Staff was wonderful and gave us a real taste of D.R. hospitality. Small group made travel easy & group was all baseball aficionados & very compatible. Loved it, ready to go on next Japanball trip.

Having met Shane Barclay on a JapanBall trip in Japan when he was understudying Bob Bavasi, before Shane took command of JapanBall, I was expecting great things from his first Dominican Republic baseball foray. Unbelievably, he exceeded my high expectations. Although it was not possible to completely escape the "mañana" mentality of service in a Latin American country, Shane managed the logistics to near perfection, overcoming this handicap. Everything from the selection of lodgings, to restaurant outings, not to mention the baseball heart of the trip (visiting youth baseball games, local baseball academies, and the Dominican League games in three different stadiums) was done with first class precision. If this was only the first such D.R. excursion, it bodes well for all future participants. Recommended without any reservation whatsoever.

Doc, this is so kind of you! I appreciate your kind words and understanding. Most of all, I appreciate you coming along for the journey. Looking forward to many more!

I just returned from the inaugural JapanBall trip to the Dominican Republic. What a terrific experience. The group was great, our group leaders were terrific, and the itinerary was super fun. While baseball is the primary focus, the tour blended in cultural activities that help provide a deeper understanding of the country and its people. The four LIDOM games were a primary highlight while other baseball-oriented activities helped build an understanding of the developmental system for players in the D.R. The tour provided a comprehensive view of players' experiences including meeting team executives, scouts (Pablo Cruz and others), trainers (Alfredo Arias), bankers, former players and coaches (Raphael Landestoy and Mel Rojas were highlights), and serendipitously, current stars (Juan Soto and Fernando Tatis, Jr. - how could you do better?). The hotel, food, and island beach day were great, too. This was a fabulous, well-run, first-class experience. Many thanks to Shane, Pachi, and Tomas for their work to put it together and make it happen smoothly.

If you are into baseball this is the trip for you. Besides the 4 Dominican Republic winter league ballgames, we got a glimpse into the path that aDominican child takes to get to the big leagues. From community camps to trainers camps to the mlb academies, these kids are taught not only baseball but receive some education so they have something to fall back on. We also visited cultural, recreational, and historic sites along with a Rum manufacturer. Shane and his crew really outdid themselves with meetings with scouts, former and current players, trainers, and even an executive from one of the Dominican teams! Highly recommended!
By Eddie B for JapanBall goes to the Dominican Republic! on 12 Nov, 2021
Eddie, thanks so much for the kind review! I'm so glad that you appreciated all the detail about the path of the Dominican ballplayer. Also so glad you got all your baseballs signed! Looking forward to catching a ballgame together again.
