CUBA’S NATIONAL BASEBALL SERIES 2018
SERIE NACIONAL DE BEISBOL AUGUST 28-SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
The 58th edition of Cuba’s National Baseball Series is one month old, and team positions have remained constant since the start of the season. Fighting for first place are Ciego de Avila, Industriales, and Villa Clara. Both Industriales and Villa Clara have new managers, rookie manager Eduardo Paret with Villa Clara and veteran Rey Anglada with Industriales.
Matanzas continues to hold on to last place and has been joined by Pinar del Rio, so two of last year’s best team are probably not going to make it to the second phase of the Cuban National Series which begins the third week of October. Reigning champion Granma, which won back-to-back titles the previous two years is competing with the two last place teams. Granma allowed 78 runs and only scored 26 runs during eight games between August 19th and August 28th.
