Jurickson Profar (MLB)
When: 2004, Willemstad, Curacao
When he went pro: Profar was a huge factor in Curacao’s 2004 LLWS victory, blasting a two-run homer as the Willemstad squad captured the title. He returned with the same group a year later, but couldn’t take back-to-back crowns. No matter. The wunderkind slugger was signed by the Rangers just four years later and was a stalwart in Arlington for five years before landing with Oakland in the prior offseason. He’s now a third baseman for the Athletics.
