Colombia Winter Baseball League
I am currently serving as the hitting coach for the Barranquilla Caimanes of the Colombian Professional Baseball League, or La Liga Colombiana de Béisbol Profesional. The most commonly known professional winter baseball leagues are in the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and Mexico, however the Colombian League is trying to put themselves on the map and is making an effort to become part of the Carribean League World Series.
Barranquilla is a good team, having won the last 3 league championships, and we are currently in first place. There is a wide range of talent – from rookie ball players, several AA and AAA players, and a number of independent leaguers.
We just passed the All-Star break, with 21 games now left in the regular season. Our coaching staff and 9 players were named to the All-Star team, which was unfortunately canceled due to heavy rain. Now the goal is to keep playing well and get qualified for the post-season, which starts with a 12 game round-robin tournament and finishes with a best of 7 series between the two best teams.
