Is there a Baseball Game in Holguin in mid-April?

February 19, 2013 | Print Print |

QUESTION: I’m inquiring on the baseball season in Cuba in April.  We will be travelling to Holguin from April 14-20th and would love to catch a game.  Is the season still open during this time? And if so is there a schedule?  I did see a schedule on the Baseball Cuba website however it seems to only go to January.  Any info you have would be appreciated.

ANSWER:  The season reached its halfway point at the end of January before taking a break until the end of March for the World Baseball Classic preparation of Team Cuba. In April play will be in full swing, however the schedule for the second half of the regular season probably won’t be announced until late March.  Unfortunately for you both Holguin and the nearest other team, Granma, were eliminated in the first half of the season. The next closest city with a team playing in the second half of the season is Ciego de Avila, a good ways further west. Check back to our page at that time to find out if they have a home game during your dates.


What's your opinion?

    It should be noted here that both Holguin and Granma have been eliminated from the National Series championship round and their games in March and April will be part of the Division II series and not the regular National Series season. Pete Bjarkman

      Thanks Peter for catching our mistake.

    Matt, although the schedule for the second half of the Cuban baseball season has yet to be made public, you can be sure they’ll be playing during the dates you will be in Cuba. Check back with us at the end of March and we should have the schedule posted.
