Dominican Summer League

From BR Bullpen

(Redirected from DSL)

The Dominican Summer League was started in 1985 as a way for players from the Dominican Republic to get professional experience without having to adjust to a foreign culture. A rookie-class league, the DSL is a large organization where almost every major league team has an entry annually. Sometimes, teams have even had multiple entries in the league. Talent levels differ greatly, allowing such oddities as a 68-2 season by the DSL Blue Jays East squad in 1992. In addition to the MLB-organized teams, the Hiroshima Carp also placed entries into the league for several seasons in the mid-90s.

The league had four teams in its initial year, but had swelled to thirty-seven teams in 2008.
