Puerto Rico confirms its participation within the Caribbean Baseball Cup

The Puerto Rico Baseball Federation has confirmed its participation in the third edition of the Caribbean Cup, which will be held on the island of Curaçao from April 16 to 24.

The event is organized by the Caribbean Baseball Federation and serves as the pre-Olympic Games for the American national team.

The association’s president, Jose Coyles, announced that he would repeat the role of mentor Juan “Igor” Gonzalez, leader of the champions of the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games and the 2019 Pan American Games.

This is the first time Puerto Rico has confirmed its participation in this tournament, which will help us evaluate and determine which players we will present at the pre-Olympics. It is important that our national team have the opportunity to face high-level competitions before such an important event. That was the key to winning the 2018 and 2019 gold medals, ”explained Cowles.

In addition to Puerto Rico, teams from Curaçao, the Dominican Republic, the US Virgin Islands and Haiti have also been confirmed for participation in the tournament. The organizing committee expects an answer from Venezuela, Panama, Chile and Peru.

Cowles stated that the tournament also earns baseball ranking points in the World Baseball and Softball Confederation (WBSC, for its acronym).
