Oct 3, -- The 53rd Cuban Baseball Series will begin on November 3rd in the central city of Santa Clara, 206 km. east of the capital, the Baseball National Federation confirmed today.
The official inauguration will be held at the Augusto Cesar Sandino stadium with a duel between the reigning champion, Villa Clara and runner-up Matanzas.
However, unlike previous tournaments, Season openers will be held simultaneously in 7 other stadiums around the country.
Isla de la Juventud and Pinar del Rio will also play in the first sub-series November 3rd-5th, at the Capitan San Luis stadium; Las Tunas-Artemisa game will be held at the 26 de Julio stadium of the latter city; and that of Cienfuegos-Mayabeque clash will take place at the Nelson Fernandez stadium.
Meanwhile, Industriales will also flex its muscles against Santiago de Cuba, at the Guillermon Moncada stadium, Sancti Spíritus will face Guantánamo at the Nguyen Van Troi stadium; Ciego de Ávila will meet Holguín as visitor, at the José Ramón Cepero stadium; and Granma will rival Camaguey at the Cándido González stadium.
The game between Granma and Camaguey could change somewhat due to the interest of Granma provincial authorities in hosting the sub-series, as it coincides with the 500th anniversary of the City of Bayamo, which was founded on November 5th, 1513.
The Federation also informed that as of December 30th there will be a New Year's break and games will restart on Saturday, January 4th, with the selection of reinforcements for the playoffs. The next day, the All-Star game will be held.
Finally, the second part of the series runs January 11th-March 17th with a January 30th-February 10th recess for the Caribbean Series, if Cuba's presence is finally approved, with the team of Villa Clara representing the country.
