In recent years, Major League Baseball has made an effort to play a greater role in the development of baseball in Latin America. MLB has focused on creating scenarios for MLB Clubs and scouts to view and evaluate amateur talent from the Dominican Republic and other Latin American countries.
Some of the programs designed to aid in the development of baseball in these countries include a coaches internship program, international baseball clinics, showcases, tournaments and the newly formed MLB Amateur Prospect League. The MLB Amateur Prospect League also places special emphasis on creating additional opportunities for players on and off the playing field by including an educational component for all league participants.
