Licey and Aguilas Out of Dominican Baseball


Dominican Baseball teams Tigres del Licey and Aguilas Cibaenas, who combined for 40 of the 56 titles in the professional baseball tournament will not be in the Second Round of the baseball event.

It is the first time since it was implemented the expansion in the 1983-84 season that the two most popular dominican baseball teams are discarded in the same regular season.

The Tigres (17-32) were in the fight in the first weeks, but a seven-game losing streaks, two of six and another five did not allow the glorious team  to keep pace with their opponents.

A change of manager (Brian Harper by Dave Clark) was not enough for the Blues back on track for success.

A poor defense combined with a poor performance from their starting pitching and some timely offense were the factors that influenced the disqualification of Licey, which ranked last in the standings by
the ninth time in history.

Aguilas del Cibao  (24-25) began losing seven of their first nine games (2-7), but as  November 14 began a recovery that kept them in contention to enter the All Against All until the last day.
