How much baseball do they even play in South America? (excluding Venezuela, Columbia)
I always thought Argentinians and Brazilians were focused on futbol.

How much they play baseball in a country is not really important. Teams need to mine other countries and establish a foothold and encourage kids to play baseball. That's how teams can improve their player development long term. Become the face of baseball in [insert country here]. It's realistically not that expensive to operate an academy in a country like say Paraguay. And if something takes hold, they are there form the outset.
