Baseball is Curaçaos’ most popular sport. For being an island of roughly 160,000 people it produces more Major Leauge Baseball athletes per capita than any other country. This story pays tribute to, Frank Curiel, a man who has dedicated over 50+ years to baseball. He has formed part of the journey of nearly every major baseball athlete from the island, and countless others. Even though retired, to this day he continues to champion the sport, help his community any way possible and make sure the kids have a safe place to go and train baseball at Frank Curiel Ballpark.
