They hold a congress

According to Uriel Blanco, coordinator of the sports area, this league seeks to keep outstanding veteran athletes active, "We have seen that once the modified league of veterans ends, they no longer have nowhere to have fun and only the young people in the free baseball category remained and as our field becomes vacant, then that's why we thought about opening this inter-agency , so that veterans stay active in what we like and our authorities supported this proposal," Blanco said.
In addition, the official noted that the league has been well valued by the players and their team representatives and as a sign of that he emphasized that the first season had the participation of 10 teams and in this second season 5 more teams have been registered.
