Remy Maduro played four minor league seasons and appeared in the Olympics.

Maduro went 0 for 8 with a walk and a run in the 1995 Intercontinental Cup, backing up Adonis Kemp in left field. He debuted as a pro in 1996 with the GCL Marlins, hitting .226/.353/.240 in 24 games. The outfielder showed little other than good plate discipline (15 BB, 9 K). In 1997, he batted .217/.287/.287 for the Utica Blue Sox and was just 2-for-7 in steal attempts. During 1998, Remy hit .263/.351/.298 in 65 games for the Brevard County Manatees. He finished his US stay in '99 by batting .231/.308/.352 in 29 games for Brevard County.

In 2000, Remy came to the Hoofdklasse with the Amsterdam Expos. He hit .380 to finish 4th in the league. He tied Dirk van 't Klooster for 6th in runs (34), was 4th in hits (57), tied for 2nd in doubles (12, trailing Robert Eenhoorn), tied for 2nd in triples (3, behind van 't Klooster), tied Mike Crouwel for the home run lead (7), led in RBI (45) and led in slugging (.640). It was the first Dutch season after the return to wood bats and his home run total was the record until Ivanon Coffie broke it in 2005.

Maduro made the Dutch team for the 2000 Olympics. Backing up former major leaguer Hensley Meulens in left field, he went 0 for 4 in 6 games and handled one putout in the field. Remy also represented the Netherlands in the 2001 World Port Tournament (a miserable 3 for 29 with one homer) and the 2001 European Championship (.433/.528/.700, 8 R, 8 RBI in 8 games). In the 2001 Euros, he was 7th in slugging, tied for 5th in runs, tied for 2nd in homers (2) and tied for third in total bases (17). He went 3 for 4 in the finals against Russia to help the Netherlands win Gold. Maduro made the All-Tournament outfield alongside Brad Marcelino and Roberto De Franceschi.

In the 2001 Hoofdklasse, the Amsterdam flyhawk tied for third with 34 RBI. He concluded his international career in the 2001 Baseball World Cup, backing up Danny Rombley in center field and Meulens in left. Maduro was just 1 for 12 with a walk and six strikeouts. Aside from his star show in the 2001 Euros, he had only been 4 for 45 in international tournaments.
