COSTA RICA: ONE HECK OF A NATURAL WONDER

YOUNG BOYS PLAY BALL AS CLOUDS SHROUD MOUNTAINS AND TURRIALBA'S VOLCANO IN THE DISTANCE

Ever wonder where big league baseballs are made? Try the small Costa Rican town of Turrialba, home to Rawlings baseball manufacturing plant.

 

Central America's most prosperous and historically peaceful countries, Costa Rican No. 1 sport is soccer, not baseball. But that doesn't mean they don't play the grand old game here. Drive across this natural wonder of a country on any given Sunday in its "summer," and you will find men young and old playing soccer - and baseball - on fields of green, some with volcanos as a backdrop!

 

Costa Rica will likely never been a participant in the World Baseball Classic. Still, you can learn all about Costa Rica's baseball history in World in a Ballpark: Baseball Goes Globalwhich is available for purchase at the Buy Joe's Guides page. Also, enjoy this small collage of Costa Rican baseball. If you want to view a sample of the guide and see how easy the guide is to use, visit the World Baseball Classic page.
