Dominican baseball fans are delighted with the clash between the two Cibao teams, Gigantes del Cibao and Águilas Cibaeñas for the Dominican Professional Winter Baseball Championship. This is the first playoff ever of the two Cibao teams.
The Gigantes del Cibao won the first of the seven-game series, 5-1 played at their ballpark in San Francisco de Macorís.
The series continues this Tuesday, 12 January with a game at 7pm at the Cibao ballpark in Santiago.
The winner is scheduled to play in the Caribbean Series to be held in Mazatlan, Mexico from 31 January to 6 February 2021. There is skepticism as to whether the Caribbean Series will be carried out given the new developments with the pandemic.
