You can get a good idea of the players that will make up the rosters from the teams that played in the 2005 Serie del Caribe (Caribbean World Series) made up of Mexico, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. You can see some sights and sound here:

Serie del Caribe

For the uniform makers, I'll post photos with some of the team uniforms next.

OT, but I giggled at this....that looks like a really old cellular phone in his back pocket (I know it's batting gloves, but still).

I think Oscar Robles is better at SS than amezaga, and I dont consider Arredondo as starter, is better carrillo at RF, l.garcia at CF and k.garcia at LF.

I've already did portraits for garcia, campos and valenzuela and I'm working on the others.

Mexico won the 2005 series by the way:

Just wanna say that the "C" in the helmet is there because the team that won in Mexico the "Liga del Pacifico" were the Tomateros de Culiacan and the C is the initial of Culiacan, we should put the Mexico flag there instead of the C of Culiacan.

Just a quick update.

I've finished the Mexico and Australia rosters. Doing a few more tests on ratings and it should be ready to go for now. Hope to release a beta 2 version by the weekend. I've added the portraits posted by wedss for Jeff Williams, Craig Anderson, and Brett Roneberg. Trent Oeltjen has a portrait after updating my portrait.big with the latest Total Portraits packs. Sonickim sent great portraits of Campos, Garcia, and Valenzuela. So here's the list of who's left to do with the numbers I've assigned on the roster; I'll include any in the beta 2 that I receive through Thursday:

AUSTRALIA

9502 Fingelson

9503 Kingman

9504 Craig Lewis

9505 Utting

9506 Van Buizen

MEXICO

9511 Arredondo

9512 Carrillo

9513 Javier Robles

9514 Velasquez

En Español...

Para cuando creen que tengan listo los equipos de la serie mundial de béisbol, todos con sus respectivos jugadores i uniformes respectivos, que posibilidad hay de la serie mundial se monte en el juego como una sección aparte para jugarla solo con los 16 equipos…ya que solo jugar juegos amistosos viendo la selección de la preferencia del usuario divierte pero no tanto….es mas emocionante jugar con tu equipo predilecto hasta donde clasifique…

En Igles (disculpen la traduccion)

For when they believe that they have clever the teams of the world series of baseball, all with their respective players i respective uniforms that possibility is of the world series are mounted in the game like a separate section to play it alone with the 16 teams

Do you need portraits for these guys or just ratings?

Yes, I need portraits and I need to verify how each of them bat and throw (which hand? any switch hitters? weird batting stance? exceptional or really bad arm?).

I'm testing some ratings now based on their World Cup stats compared to the more established players like Huber, Durrington and Morrissey. Small sample size though. Any opinions on how they compare in speed, power and contact compared to those 3 would be helpful in finetuning. Faster/slower/same speed? more/less/same power? better/same/worse contact hitter? (i like to look at average and K/AB ratio)

Here's a good page that may come in handy for you it has the final stats for all Australian currently playing in the US. http://www.users.bigpond.com/goreds/USSTATS.htm

Also are there any other portraits that you need that I've forgotten about?

Note that the birthday is listed as DD/MM/YY

Kingman

Number: 36

B/T: R/R

D.O.B: 22.05.73

He hits for both average and power. Defense and speed wise he reminds me of Darin Erstad.

Lewis

Number: 26

B/T: R/R

D.O.B: 30.12.76

Hits for good average, not the speediest guy around but can steal a bag, can hit it out of the park but plays for average. Solid defense ont he corners.

Fingleson

Number: 4

B/T: S/R

D.O.B: 05.08.76

Reminds me of Loretta, speed defense and power wise, not as good contact though.

Utting

Number: 17

B/T: S/R

D.O.B: 09.09.77

Util who hits for average, remind me most of Jose Vizcaino but with more arm strength and slightly better speed

Rodney van Buizen

Number: 6

B/T: R/R

D.O.B: 25.09.80

Speedy defensive shortstop who hits for average with a bit of power. Similar to Adam Everett with better contact.

Hope that helps.
