The small island with major league talents

Curaçao, an island not far from Venezuela that forms part of the ‘Dutch Caribbean’ is the answer should your trivia question be, “Which country has, per capita, the highest number of major league baseball players?”.  This country of about 150,000 people has 7 active players with more looking like joining the ranks soon.

And the New York Times has a good article on the place and the baseball, as well as some very decent photos from Melissa Lyttle.  Have a read and a look over here.
