2015 Caribbean Baseball Series
A spirited 2014 Cuban National Series champion Pinar del Río ball club, reinforced with some of the Caribbean island’s biggest stars, staged a rather stunning comeback in San Juan on the final weekend of Caribbean Series #57 and thus made history in the process. The inspired win erased the deep disappointments of last year’s long-awaited return to Caribbean Series competition, where the country had not appeared since a 1960 title by the professional league Cienfuegos Elefantes closed out the First Stage of the annual winter league championships.
Represented by last season’s champs, Pinar del Rio, the Cuban Baseball Federation announced the team to play in the Caribbean Series in Puerto Rico this coming Feb. 2-8.
The series involves teams from Venezuela, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Cuba. The teams are allowed to stack their squads with top players from other teams in their respective local leagues.
