Day 23 of our “30 Days of Irish Baseball” countdown to St. Patrick’s Day is here! A couple of weeks ago, we told you the amazing story of Cuban baseball players living in Ireland. Today, we have some rare footage from a club league game in Dublin, circa 2005. In this game, the Dublin Spartans — one of the top club teams in Ireland — took on the Dublin Giants. While the Giants roster was composed almost entirely of Cuban-born players, the Spartans roster included some legendary Irish National Baseball Team pioneers like Sean Mitchell, Will Beglane, John Dillon, and Darran O’Connor.
