Cuban outfielder Santos to play in Colombian Professional Baseball LeagueHAVANA, Cuba, Nov 9 (acn) Cuban Roel Santos, member of the last national squads, signed a contract to play this season with the Barranquilla Caimanes, team of the Colombian Professional Baseball League (LCBP by its Spanish acronym).

For the outstanding player from the Cuban eastern province of Granma, this is another great challenge in his career after participating in the Canadian-American League (Can-Am) and the Japanese Professional League (NPB), he told JIT sports publication.

This will be a very intense tournament with two months of competition, until December 30, but if the team qualifies to postseason, Santos will remain there during the month of January.

The 2018-19 LCBP season starts today, and will be two intense months of competition, but I am ready to take on the challenge, Santos said.

Los Barranquilla Caimanes´ headquarter is the Edgar Renteria stadium, same venue that hosted the baseball event in the past Central American and Caribbean Games, and has nine LCBP titles, although they have not been crowned since the 2015-2016 season.
