    I am finding it difficult to understand the schedule. Are there any games in Havana Between on the 15th or 16th of April?

      There is no game on the 15th and Industriales hosts Ciego de Avila at the Latinoamericano Stadium in Havana on April 16th.

    One more question. I think I have it figured out, I believe Matanzas plays Pinar Del rio on the 20 – 22 of march in Matanzas.
    But it that is correct, what time do the games start?

      March 20-22 has already passed. Do mean April or May?

    Matanzas plays at home on May 20-22 against PInar del Rio. That series ends the second round of the baseball season. The playoffs will most likely be starting the last week of May.
