The ripple effect of the Pan American and Parapan American Games continues in the various competition stages used between July 26 and September 1. One of these stages is the baseball stadium in the Villa María del Triunfo Sports Center, where week after week the National Baseball Championship is being played, in its different categories.
In an atmosphere of great camaraderie, the Senior and Aspirant tournaments are held on Sunday and the under 15 and under 18 tournaments on Saturday.
Peruvian players and members of the national team for the Pan American Games, and Venezuelan and Cuban players living in Peru, are part of the Pumas, Kiuyo, Taiyo, Católica and Leones teams that are fighting for the championship in the 2019 tournament organized by the Peruvian Baseball Federation.
The Pumas defeated the Leones 3-2 in their match this last Tuesday, making the most of the national holiday, while the Universidad Católica team beat Kiuyo seven runs to zero.
DURING THE LIMA 2019 GAMES
During the Pan American Games, the baseball stadium hosted the tournament in which teams from Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Argentina, Cuba and Puerto Rico competed, as well as Peru.
