MINERS TO WELCOME CUBAN, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC TEAMS
February 3, Augusta, NJ – The Can-Am League and Commisioner Miles Wolff announced today that for the third consecutive year, Can-Am clubs will take on international squad during the regular season. For the 2017 season, the Cuban National Team and Dominican Republic National Team will provide the opposition for Can-Am teams from June 8–29, 2017.
“Over the past two seasons, the Can-Am League has led the way in showcasing the varied, exciting styles of baseball played across the world to North American fans,” Wolff said. “We’re looking forward to welcoming our Cuban opponents back to Canada and the United States, as well as getting a look at the national team of the Dominican Republic.”
South Korea’s Yeoncheon Miracle, who encountered visa and travel issues in their preparations to come to North America, have been replaced by the Dominican Republic for this year’s series. Previously, the Shikoku Island All-Stars had played in the first two seasons on Can-Am international play. The DR will visit the Miners to open their campaign from June 9–11, 2017.
This will be the Cuban National Team’s second tour of the Can-Am League. Last year, Cuba went 11-9 against Can-Am teams, including a three-game sweep of the Miners back on June 21-23. Cuba will visit Skylands Stadium from June 19–21, 2017.
