SPANISH EDUCATION, AND THEN CELEBRATION...

THE SPANIARDS ARE TODAY INFLUENCED BY DOMINICANS AND VENEZUELANS WITH SPANISH PASSPORTS

Baseball in Spain? You, betcha! Baseball, popular, in the home of the famous "Running of the Bulls?" Well, popular isn't the right description – more like a well-known niche sport.

"Most Europeans don't consider baseball a sport," a Spaniard named Stephane tells me as we watch a game on his native soil. Stephane loves the game though. "Baseball is not as complicated as it seems, but learning to play good baseball is another thing entirely. We really need that with experience."

 

Rock on, Spain, which qualified for the 2013 World Baseball Classic! You can learn more about baseball in Spain and Europe in World in a Ballpark: Baseball Goes Global, which is available for purchase at the Buy Joe's Guides page.
