three months pass...

so i'll be there in late Nov – but am having hard time divining if there are going to be any actual baseball games going on while i'm there.

i am confident that there'll be actual baseball games, but discovering when and where does seem awfully complicated. maybe ask this guy for tips? https://twitter.com/baseballdecuba

What we call the regular season, they call the National Series, and it runs from August thru late December.

There's a schedule link, but it only shows the results of the first half.

also - anyone have an idea what players might be worth checking out? are there any left?!

my understanding is the talent pool is not what it was when i went 14 years ago... or 5 years ago

i suppose it doesn't matter anyways since i cannot find an actual schedule to save my life right now.

you should definitely go to a game. write to Kit Krieger (Cuba Ball, based in Vancouver) if necessary.
