Watch Road to the Big Leagues
- 53 min
Jared Goodman shows how badly young Dominican Republic baseball players want to successful and reach the Major Leagues in his documentary film Road to the Big Leagues. The presentation of life in the third world country isn't sugar coated and truly shows how badly the lower class population struggle on a day to day basis. For young men in the Dominican Republic there is only sometimes one way out of poverty and that is to be drafted and signed by a Major League Baseball team. Successful Dominican natives also appear in the documentary with their own personal stories of hunger and hardship. David Ortiz and Vladamir Guerrero started on these very same dirt lots and give young men a role model to follow as they chase their own dreams.
