CUBA BASEBALL SERIES 2019
Updated: Oct 3, 2019
CUBA’S 59TH NATIONAL BASEBALL SERIES FINAL DAYS OF FIRST PHASE
The first phase of Cuba’s National Baseball Series is almost over, with two weeks left the top ten teams on September 30, 2019 are;
2. Santiago de Cuba
5. Las Tunas
6. Sancti Spiritus
9. Isla de la Juventud
10. Pinar del Rio
The top three teams are in a dead heat with one and a half games separating the leader from the number three team. Last year’s champion Las Tunas is only three games behind first and is sure to play in the second phase of the season. Only the top six teams will play in the second phase, which begins at the end of October, with the fifth and sixth spots going to the winners of wild card games, played between the fifth to eighth place teams.
Last week a bench clearing brawl took place between Havana and Holguin. Six players were eventually disciplined for their participation, with suspensions ranging from a minimum of ten games to three players who received one-year suspensions. Not a good idea to fight on the field in Cuba!
