2. Alex Rodriguez (Dominican Republic)

Born in Washington Heights and raised primarily in Miami, A-Rod isn’t a product of the DR baseball system like the other Dominicans on this list but he did live there briefly as a kid. And though his sometimes off-putting personality, headline-grabbing relationships (with Madonna, Cameron Diaz and about a dozen other celebs whose names we can’t recall) and the uncanny numbers he put up in Texas and Seattle can obscure his achievements, Rodriguez has been everything he was supposed to be since signing with the Yankees in the biggest free-agent deal of all time.
