    Maurits is an American-born (confirmed to me by the club) '97 attacker who plays with the second team of second-division RKC Waalwijk.

    Got an assist for them earlier this month:

    In het begin van de wedstrijd stond de verdediging minder goed en er werden weinig duels gewonnen. Geldrop was de betere partij en scoorde terecht de 1-0. Na de 1-0 gingen wij beter voetballen en werden wij de bovenliggende partij. De jongens werden scherper en wonnen meer duels. De 1-1 werd gescoord door Jari Koenraat uit een prachtige voorzet van Maurits de Baar. In de eerste helft werden nog enkele kansen gecreëerd, maar deze werden helaas niet benut.​

    It looks like he made a few first-team appearances for them, scoring a goal, last season, so maybe he's a candidate for more playing time this season as well.

    It looks like he came to RKCW from Elinkwijk, which he joined from Den Bosch.

    Quick question, are you related to Maurits at all? If so, does he have an interest in representing the US if called in?

    Maurits is my son
    He would be very much interested playing soccer in the MLS or USL of course

    And to represent the US would be even a greater honour

    So if you know a team from the MLS or USL that needs a young, fast American right winger that was trained as a professional football player in the Netherlands, do not hesitate to contact us

    So he's played for the first team in eerste divisie? His wikipedia page says he has.

    probably belongs here but does the thread get promoted? https://www.bigsoccer.com/threads/maurits-de-baar-at-rkc-waalwijk.2070798/
