In this Oct. 25, 2012 photo, a young player practices batting at a baseball school in Maracay, Venezuela. Many of the boys are inspired by the example of Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera, who learned the game on this very field. Their baseball school in the poor neighborhood where Cabrera grew up is one of many across Venezuela, a web for training young ballplayers that has made the country a powerhouse in the U.S. major leagues.
