Baseball Bahamas – Where The Next Stars of The Game Are Born

Just a short introduction of myself.

My name is Jeffrey Francis or Jeff Francis and I run the baseball site, Baseball Bahamas where I write about the minor league baseball players that are from my beautiful island in the Caribbean.

At the age of 18 years old, I started coaching this wonderful game of baseball. The love of the game grew from my childhood as I started listening to games in the late 60’s out of Miami, Florida. Then in the early 70’s, I started playing in various leagues locally, right up to the premier senior league, the same league where all of the current Bahamian minor leaguers have played.

In 1982, I was invited to a three day tryout with the New York Yankees in Hollywood, Florida.

Now my love for the game has brought me to following the next stars from our homeland and giving them the platform they deserve.

I am thankful to Legends on Deck for providing this platform which will allow me the opportunity to share about the 19 active Bahamian minor league ball players and their 2018 achievements. I will also follow up with an end of year review on all of the players.

I am looking forward to sharing and truly introducing the baseball players to the world, and the country where they are from.

Stay Tuned….
