What makes this such a HUGE game as both teams will make it to the playoffs in January, which is what really counts.

The only country with an "Aguilas Cibaenas" team, when there are no endemic Eagles across it. Either way, I hate "las Aguilas Cibaenas" TILL THE BOTTOM OF THE NINE!

Go Estrellas.....

The Aguilas are like the old Brooklyn Dodgers, or the old Pirates....

In reality, they built a dynasty together with the Pirates in the 60s and 70s. As with the Atlanta Braves. We had Gene Garber, Steve Blass, Rick Waits, Gene Tenace (Oakland), Dave Parker, George Foster, Sad Sam Jones, Dick Stuart...and Manny Sanguillen of course...

And a long, long list of Dominican big-leaguers...like Tony Peña, Manny Ramirez, José Lima, Miguel Diloné, Miguel Tejada, Bartolo Colón etc etc etc.

The rivalry with Licey dates back to the early 50s and is sort of Country vs. City.

It was sometimes interpreted as Anti-Trujillo vs Trujillo (but NEVER in the open).


The importance of tonight's game is that whoever wins the head to head matchup and is tied in first place, will get to play the 4th place team, I believe, and also--very important--have first choice in the drafting of players from the non-qualifying teams...a major step to shoring up weak spots in the lineup..

It will be a good game I hope..

Good luck, you will most likely end up buying tickets from the scalpers. Please take a copy of the stadium seating with you as the scalpers are prone to say the seats are in a section they actually aren't.

Aguilas lost on a Paulino home run, 4-2!


Tonight's game against the Leones del Escogido could be important, cause if we win and the Gigantes lose in San Pedro, there is a tie in first place, and maybe a playoff game to decide the pecking order in the player draft for the Round Robin.


FYI, Island Dreaming: When I first came here, they flew (more or less) British Mosquito jets (twin boom, single jet, cloth covered wings!! A Norwegian pilot friend said that he had flown them in Europe, but would not get into one here. They also had about a dozen beautiful P-51s. Some were used for parts, but the sound of them doing barrel rolls and screaming dives will live forever in my mind....I heard that the last two of them were sold to one of the Hemingway gals..

Things awfully quiet in the Aguilas Cibaeñas camp. :)

From dr1 news:

Escogido defeats Licey in Santo Domingo

It was a good evening for Escogido Lions fans. Despite putting men on base several times, the Licey Tigers were not able to defeat the Lions during the Monday, 8 January 2018 game at the Quisqueya Ball Park in Santo Domingo. Nevertheless, the defending champions, the Tigres del Licey continue in the lead of the Dominican Winter Professional Baseball Championship, with the standings: Licey 7-2, Escogido 5-4, Aguilas 4-5 and Gigantes 2-7.

The round robin games continue with no days off through Thursday, 18 January 2018, by when the playoff teams need to be decided.
