2019 Caribbean Series | Serie Del Caribe to Move to Panama
This year the Series del Caribe was supposed to be played in Barquisimeto, Venezuela, the home of the Lara Cardenales. Because of the violence occurring there a number of teams were not willing to travel there and Major League Baseball (MLB) warned minor leaguers to stay away.
Mexico had bailed Venezuela out last year when political violence prevented that country from being the host but they were hesitant to do it again. So now the games will be played in Panama at the Rod Carew stadium.
For Panama it allows one of their teams to participate in the Serie del Caribe for the first time since the games reformed. Panama will be represented by Toros de Herrera.
Other teams who have qualified are Leñadores de Las Tunas (Cuba), Estrellas Orientales (Dominican Republic), Cangrejeros de Santurce (Puerto Rico), Cardenales de Lara (Venezuela) and the winner of the series between the Charros de Jalisco and Yaquis de Ciudad Obregon.
The tournament will start Feb 4-10. Panama’s gain is Lara’s loss. It is the second straight year the tournament has had to leave Barquisimeto because of the political violence there.
