Episode Summary

Field of Broken Dreams
(10/19/2010) An investigation into an American pastime and the big business that runs it. That business is Major League Baseball and no country produces more baseball talent outside of the United States than the Dominican Republic. Despite the Dominican Republic’s relatively small size, the multi-billion dollar business of Major League Baseball would suffer without the pipeline of prospects this country produces. With dreams of making it big in the U.S. like mega-star Dominican athletes Pedro Martinez or David Ortiz, many children see baseball as a chance to hit the jackpot in a land with almost no other economic opportunities. In the Dominican Republic baseball dollars can be seen everywhere-- and kids will sacrifice everything, including an education, to get them.moreless
