In Group A of the tournament, the teams of the Leñadores de la Tunas from Cuba, the Cardenales de Lara from Venezuela and Charros de Jalisco from Mexico were planted, while in Group B the Toros de Panamá, Cangrejeros de Santurse from Puerto Rico and Estrellas Orientales from Dominican Republic.

As for the matches, according to the organizers, from Monday 4 to Friday 8 February, the first daily game will be at 3:00 p.m. (20:00 p.m. GMT) and the second at 8:00 p.m. (01:00 p.m. GMT the next day).

On Saturday, February 9, the first game of the day will be at 13:00 local time (18:00 GMT); second game of the day at 19:00 local time (00:00 GMT on Sunday) while on Sunday, February 10, the final game will be given at 4:00 pm local time (21:00 GMT).

David Salayandia, president of Panamanian professional baseball, said that each team will play twice with their group rivals and that the first of each group will play the final of the baseball tournament, which brings together the champions of those leagues.

Precisely this Wednesday the inspectors of the Major Leagues will be in the national stadium Rod Carew, in the Panamanian capital, to make an inspection to the coliseum that will house, from next Monday, the 61 edition of the Series of the Caribbean of professional Baseball.

The leader also highlighted the possible presence of former major leagues player Mariano Rivera, who last week was chosen unanimously to enter the Hall of Fame of the Major Leagues.

At the moment, the invitation to the former Yankees closer and leader of the Majors, with 652 rescues, is made and only his confirmation is missing.

Tomorrow, the president of the CBPC, Juan Francisco Puello, is also expected to arrive in Panama.

Panama was a regular participant in the first stage of the Series of the Caribbean that was held between 1949 and 1960.

The Panamanians won the second series of that stage in 1950 with the Carta Vieja team and prepared the last one in 1960. Almost 60 years later, the event returns to the Central American country.
