It seems that some of the questions that were clouding the 52 Baseball National Series are starting to clear. It became known that the stellar third baseman Yulieski Gourriel will continue his career in his hometown, Sancti Spiritus.
Finally, after many street debates, Gourriel will remain being a key player for the aspirations of the “Roosters” to get a national title and it will as be always backed by stars like Frederich Cepeda, Eriel Sanchez and pitcher Ismel Jiménez.
By the way that team will see the debut this year as manager of former hurler Yosvani Aragon, one of the five people that will have such responsibility for the first time: Orlando Jarrosai (Guantanamo), Evenecer Godinez (Santiago de Cuba), Luis Guevara Cañete (Camagüey) and Giraldo Gonzalez (Pinar del Rio), a list that will continue to grow as Holguin and Metropolitanos have announced changes in its direction The capital’s Reds are yet to know if they are to stay being part of the biggest sporting event in the country these days as the National Baseball Commission holds meetings throughout the country to take experiences and ultimately dictate the calendar and game system for this coming season.
The Metropolitans are obviously at the center of the debates because there are many who disagree with the participation of 17 teams. What worries fans
and experts is that time passes and the pre-selections of all provinces are preparing blindly without a plan on how to prepare their athletes, in a year where everything is more complex for the Cuba’s participation in the Third World Classic to be held in March 2013.
