Domingo Ayala was born and raised in Puerto Plata, DR sometime between 1985 and 1995 (records have not been verified). At a young age, with the influence of his cousin, Domingo began to excel at the game of baseball. In the Dominican Republic Ayala has been a 7-time infielder of the year, and 6-time outfielder of the year award winner (two years overlapping when he played both SS and LF in order to hit twice in the lineup). Last year he played in 68 games and hit 7 home runs in 18 at bats. He was intentionally walked 146 times.  You can follow Domingo on his website, http://domingobeisbol.com/ and on Twitter @DomingoBeisbol.



Marietta, Ga. -- After showcasing his skills through a number of different YouTube videos, Dominican prospect Domingo Ayala has proven himself to be one of the premier talents in all of baseball.

Because of his “God Given” abilities and celebrity status, the East Cobb Baseball Complex in Marietta, GA buzzed with excitement as news broke that Ayala had joined the East Coast Grays for the 17u PG WWBA National Championship.

Upon arrival, Domingo posed for pictures with his adoring fans, checked out the competition, and was invited up to the press box to speak with the President and Founder of Perfect Game, Jerry Ford.

After speaking with Mr. Ford and the others in the press box, the Perfect Game staff came to conclusion that they needed to take action. Ayala was yet to step on the field and he was already the talk of the tournament.

Knowing that the hundreds of scouts in attendance were too busy drooling over Ayala to notice any other of the top prospects, a press conference was announced for Domingo to end the bidding wars.

Watch the video below to see and hear what Domingo had to say at the press conference, and the ensuing controversy following his decision.
