The Bahamas is no longer a baseball secret

Chisholm became the seventh Bahamian to reach the Majors when he debuted on Sept. 1, 2020, and the first since Richardson’s final game on Sept. 28, 2014, with the Yankees. On April 1, 2021, Chisholm, a native of Nassau, was the first player born in the Bahamas to appear on an Opening Day roster since MLB began releasing the annual data. So when the Marlins visited San Francisco—where Richardson is the first-base coach—for a four-game set in April, Chisholm and Richardson grabbed lunch to celebrate the occasion.

“I just reflect on that moment and that time, and then watch that come to fruition right now,” Richardson said. “I’m just happy that he’s able to live that dream, because the reality of it is like, we as young Bahamians in the sport of baseball, we probably haven’t had the opportunity to dream about it as big as others, just because we haven’t seen it in this generation.”

Richardson is happy to see Chisholm reach the big leagues, happy to see another player from the Bahamas make that extra push, happy to witness Chisholm’s star turn. And he expects others aren’t far behind.

“I don’t have a better word, and I’m just really, really happy to witness this happen, and then equally as excited for what is about to happen,” Richardson said. “There are so many more Bahamian guys. I know myself and Jazz—we talked about how we’ve invested into the community to make sure that number is eight sooner than later.”
