The SCHEDULE for the second half of the 58 Cuban National Series (CNS), was released by the Cuban Baseball Federation today, and includes 45 games for the six teams competing in the final stage of the national tournament.
There were two teams with the international bonus money competing for two Cuban prospects, Victor Victor Mesa and Victor Mesa Jr. They were the Orioles and the Marlins. The Marlins will have a press conference on Monday and it is expected that this press conference will announce the signings of the two Mesa brothers.
