DSL Giants Videos: July 19, 2012

From the DSL Giants at DSL Cubs2 game in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic on July 19, 2012. I took video of all the guys I was told to look out for, as much as I could. (I put stars next to their names on my scorecard so I would remember!) Keep in mind I was trying to take video and keep score at the same time, so sometimes it's probably a bit shaky. By the way, I dropped my camera earlier on the trip, and must have damaged the lens somehow, so there's a black spot pretty much right in the middle of the upper part of the screen on all the videos. And then I used YouTube's "stabilize" feature for some of my shakier videos, so it makes the black spot move around a lot. Just thought I'd let you know, in case you wonder what that thing floating in the air is :)

I'm going to start with just a few videos, and I guess I'll update this post every time I get a new one ready. I'm also still working on transcribing the other interviews I have with Gabriel (the scout), Michael Santos, Pedro Wilson (a trainer), Ánthony Gómez, and Alejandro Flores.

If you want some more context, here's my scorecard again (click to enlarge):

I'm going to be putting all these videos in a YouTube playlist, in chronological order. Here, you can set it to auto-play all the videos in succession without stopping, if you want!

Otherwise, here are all the videos with brief descriptions, if you want to pick which ones you want to watch. Click on "More Info" in the top righthand corner of each video for a more detailed description.
