In the 54th National Baseball Series main purpose should be “concentration to play faster and better”
That there is rivalry in the 54 Series no doubt, for a look at the standings shows it: between the leader and the 11th place only three games difference, while 31 games have been decided by the minimum. More rivalry is not synonymous with quality. It is true that the batting averages (272), pitching (3.82) and fielding percentage (977) are acceptable, usually approximated to the universal average. But I do not mean this. In our baseball discussed almost all -bolas, strikes, out, still, foul-, and now totaling 15 expulsions in the last six subseries, one of them Holguin Hirochi Bartutis mentor.
At that rate we would have more than 40 at the end of the first phase. Delays seem endless, time passes and what is meant to be a show ceases to be. I do not remember when was the last time a Cuban player was sent off in an international tournament, despite the referees are wrong at any latitude. Why then such protest in our midst? Concentration to play faster and better to the ball must be the primary purpose of all participants. Today start new clashes with the Ciego de Ávila pointer receiving the Elephants Southern Industrial and deputy leader traveling to face up to Bayamo Granma, unable to play this week because of the unwillingness of several players.
