According to previous predictions, with no room for surprises this time, Roberto Súliban Baldoquín and Carlos Juan Viera will be the Las Tunas representatives within the Cuba baseball team that will participate in the Santiago de Chile 2023 Pan American Games.
Las Tunas, Cuba.- With the endorsement of participating in the 5th World Classic, Viera has marked a stable presence in the latest lists. Thanks to his talent, in addition to the experience acquired in the Aztec circuits, and the potential to face left-handed hitters, the Ace from Las Tunas turns each call into good performance.
On the other hand, Baldoquín signed the dream return to the Island's pelota. After becoming a key piece for the Leñadores (Lumberjacks) on the way to their second title in the history of the province, the player from the municipality of Colombia had a debut with the national flannel at the height of the unimaginable during the 5th Caribbean Baseball Cup.
