Serie Del Caribe

The New England Patriots were not the only team crowned Champions on Super Sunday. In Mazatlan, Mexico the host team from Mazatlan were crowned champions of the Carribean World Series. Mazatlan defeated Aguilas from the Dominican Republic 4-3 on Sunday to clinch.

While Aguilas had 18 players with Major League affiliation, including Sahm's new teammate Miggy Tejada, Mazatlan were led by 2003 Cub Trenidad Hubbard, Cub killer Vinny Castilla, and Erubiel Durazo.

I have always loved the Serie Del Caribe. It used to be broadcast in the states on Telemundo. It was pretty fun to watch while listening to the Spanish speaking announcers. For about a year or so it was on Fox Sports World. But since that time Man. U, Arsenal, Chelsea and the rest of the English Premier League have taken over that network. So now the Serie Del Caribe has been relegated to Fox Sports Spanish or some network that I don't have. You'd think with all of the garbage on tv these days, that one of the U.S. cable stations would broadcast these games back to the states. I'd love to watch some live baseball in early February.
