86 Dominican baseball players on opening day Major League Baseball rosters

Major League baseball released the anual list of opening day foreign born players and there are 86 Dominicans out of the 846 active players on opening day big league clubs.  This comes out to an astounding just over ten percent of all Major League Baseball players.  The Rangers have the most Dominicans with seven out of 25 players hailing from the country.  


As usual, the per capita rate of Dominicans in the big leagues far exceeds even the United States.  In the Dominican Republic 1/116,000 individuals are on Major League Baseball roster, whereas in the United States the rate is 1/539,000.
