Defending champion Pinar del Río (23-20) got the last ticket to the second phase of the National Baseball Series with a 7-1 victory over Las Tunas. Before they, had achieved the classification Matanzas (31-14), Granma (28-15), Isla de la Juventud (27-18), Artemis and Industriales (25-20), Ciego de Ávila (24-21) and Holguin (23 -22).
These eight teams chose seven reinforcements among the best players of the tournament casts, thus the star players from those teams keep playing until the season ends, which helps their professional development.
The second stage will begin on January 4 and will have a break at the end of the month, for the preparation of Pinar del Río, who will participate in the Caribbean Series scheduled between February 1 and 8, 2015 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
