Fans flock to view Dominican League final

By Matt Snyder

The Dominican Republic has obviously produced its fair share of big-name baseball players, so it's no secret it is a baseball-loving nation. Monday night, the final game of the Dominican League playoffs is taking place and check out the full stands (Twitpic via @emercadoq):

Oh, that's not the home team. That is actually the crowd at Cibao Stadium, home of the Santiago Aguilas -- MLB free agent Yoenis Cespedes' team. The fans are there to watch the game on TV together, as their beloved Aguilas are playing the Leones del Escogido in Santo Domingo at Estadio Quisqueya.
