The Top Ten
1 Dominican Republic The Dominican Republic is a sovereign state occupying the Eastern two thirds of the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region.

Absolutely fantastic. Strong hitters, pro players, anyone arguing for the US does not know anything, since even american teams have a, if not many Dominican players. (Think Phillies, for example)

MANGU POWER

Winning the world baseball classic in 2013 felt really good to them. Having Nelson Cruz, Jose Reyes, Adrian Beltre, Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista on there team makes me rank them 1st.

I'm from Taiwan (Chinese taipei) but part of our baseball was pass on from Japan in World War 2 when they colonized Taiwan.

The Baseball there is very fundamental and won't make serious mistakes. They are harsh and will make you fundamentally good!

Japan is overall badass at baseball. They make their own style of baseball that can triumph over teams with players much bigger and taller than them. Additionally, Japan has a great little league which then plays into the pros.
