CUBA BASEBALL CHAMPIONS!
LAS TUNAS CUBAN BASEBALL CHAMPIONS!
On January 17th, 2019 the Sugar Cutters of Las Tunas defeated Villa Clara to capture the Cuban Baseball National Series championship for the first time in the teams history. As we had predicted last November, Las Tunas won after five games in the best of seven series. Las Tunas came in second place in the 2017 season only because Granma made better selections during the two roster supplementations that the Cuban National Series allows. This year Granma didn’t even make it into the second-phase of the season, which is played by the six best teams to emerge from the first-phase that runs from August to mid-October. Las Tunas dominated all season and made short work of Villa Clara.
