Koji Yamamato will manage Japan, Edwin Rodriguez will manage Puerto Rico.

-Hensley “Bam-Bam” Meulens will reportedly manage the Netherlands. Meulens is from Curacao and is thus a citizen of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In fact, he’s been knighted.

Meulens was the first MLB player from Curacao and has played for the Dutch team in a number of international competitions. In the 2000 Olympics, he had the game-winning hit against Cuba which was a huge upset at the time.

I've seen it happen a few times but I've never had the problem with a submission.
