The Caribbean country's first-ever medal in a team sport will be celebrated in a nation where many of its 11 million people grow up playing baseball, with the poor using bottle caps or whatever they can find on the streets as a makeshift ball. "To bring this bronze medal to the country means the world," said Julio Rodriguez, the team's top hitter in the tournament. "Impossible is nothing" legendary boxer Muhammad Ali once said."We're a small island but we can compete. Heidrich looked up to them after the winning point, screamed into a camera in joy and then leapt onto a railing to hug her supporters." Missing out on the podium increased South Korean disappointment after they had lost to the United States in the semi-finals, denying them the chance of winning a second straight gold in baseball at the Games. India lost only two matches in Tokyo and the teams they lost to - Australia and Belgium - are playing each other in the final. The team had two returnees, including former Major Leaguer Kim Hyun-soo, from 2008 when baseball last appeared in the Olympics.S.

Kim, who homered on Saturday, shook hands with ex-pros from the Dominican side as he left the field. The team has won eight Olympic gold medals, making it the most successful team ever, but the last gold was won in 1980 in Moscow. While Brazil were eliminated earlier in the women's tournament, the U. The United States and Japan play for the first Olympic baseball gold in 13 years later on Saturday.

South Korea starter Kim Min-woo left before recording his second out as the Dominican Republic jumped to a 4-0 first-inning lead on home runs by Rodriguez and Juan Francisco, who nearly forced the ball into an adjacent park. Thursday's win, however, was an edge-of-the-seat affair.S.

South Korea took a 6-5 lead with a four-run fifth inning amid drizzle. But the ensuing roars and towel-waving from the South Korea dugout eventually gave way to celebrations from the Dominican Republic. Sreejesh's outstanding saves were a highlight of Thursday's game The forwards have certainly been efficient and impressive, but it was Sreejesh who scripted India's medal-winning journey. They marked score after score in a five-run eighth inning with a merengue dance, accompanied by a band of team officials. "Dance is what makes our country special – that happiness," said team captain Emilio Bonificaio. India took time to settle down in the quarter-final against a lacklustre Great Britain before eventually scoring a 3-1 win. Major League Baseball teams have invested hundreds of millions of dollars since the 1990s to harness Dominican talent such as Rodriguez, who received a US$1. "Thirteen years ago we didn't come with much pressure on us.

Story continues Germany played the first quarter with incredible pace and displayed their intent to put India on the back foot right from the start.
