It’s a source of identity and pride,” commented Francisco Gimenez, Senior VP and general manager of Cable Channels for Hemisphere Media Group, Inc., the network’s parent company. “For us it is incredibly important to provide coverage of such a beloved sport, one that is a vital part of Dominican culture, and that so many Dominican fans want to see and enjoy in their adopted country. The winter season is a major and highly anticipated event on the island, and we are very pleased to bring a critical slice of Quisqueya to the Dominican community in the U.S.”

A renowned incubator and off-season home for top-tier MLB players, the Dominican Republic Professional Baseball League boasts an impressive roster with the likes of six-time MLB All-Star Jose Bautista and current Minnesota Twins right-fielder and designated hitter Nelson Cruz within its ranks. Former legends David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, Vladimir Guerrero and Sammy Sosa have also participated in the league.
