Notes from the Dominican Winter League, Venezuelan Winter League, and Puerto Rico Baseball League.
What I learned while scouring the Caribbean League box scores on Tuesday evening is that teams can actually have more than 50 players on their roster. In a 16-inning game between los Estrellas de Oriente and los Gigantes del Cibao, a combined 24 pitchers and 31 position players were used. Only two players, however (Todd Linden and Jean Segura), had more than one hit and only five of the 31 pitchers allowed a run in the 4-3 victory for Cibao.
