The Bahamas is an nation in the West Indies consisting of an archipelago of 700 islands located in the Atlantic Ocean, east of Florida in the United States and north of Cuba and the Caribbean. U.S. Navy sailors brought baseball to what was then a British colony in the early 1950s or so. The game took off in popularity after Andre Rodgers made it to the majors, and quite a few young Bahamians played pro ball in the 1960s and '70s, although the output tapered off after that.
