Cuban Baseball to taste a new road

Among the hundreds proposals resulting from the 15 meetings carried out in the 15 Cuban provinces and the municipality Isla de la Juventud, a  new structure for the baseball championships arose.

According to Higinio Velez, president of the Cuban Baseball Federation, the 52nd National Series to open on November 25, will have 16 teams, representing all the provinces in the territory and the municipality Isla de la Juventud.

A first stage will last until February and will be characterized by an all against all- game period for a total of 45 games, out of which the eight best teams will qualify for the second stage.

Forty two games will be played during the second phase,   and the qualified teams will have the possibility to choose five players from the eliminated teams.

Only four teams will qualify for play off for a cross game postseason.

During the four last series, when the qualifying round comprised 91 games, teams underwent many ups and downs. Some cases set their training strategies for long terms but even they qualified, it was hard for them to stand during the first games in postseason. That´s the case of The Indians themselves, Santiago de Cuba and Granma, just to mention a few.

The new structure has many fans in favor but others who don´t agree. The point is that the new design forces managers and coaches to implement strategies for players to do a great job since the very beginning of the championship for the first stage in baseball championship.

Even though post season has been kind of nightmare for Guantanamo Indians, they have certain possibilities at least to the second stage since during the four last championships they finished twice among the eight best teams considering the first 45 games.

What will happen this time? As many say, games at the baseball field will give us the answer. Let´s see if the champion Ciego de Avila has the best strategies in short term seasons or which team is more aggressive, vigorous or why not? slower.
