7. Jair Jurrjens (Curacao)

Few people would associate the Dutch Antilles with baseball but Curacao has one of the strongest baseball programs in the region. A team from Curacao has made it to the Little League World Series for seven straight seasons, and even won the whole thing in 2004. Currently, the island of 142,000 has four players in the majors: the best of these is Atlanta Braves starter Jair Jurrjens, who leads the National League in both wins and ERA.
