The lack of fuel strikes out the Cuban ball at the start of the U-23 National Series

The first match of the U-23 championship of the National Baseball Series, between the teams from Villa Clara and Cienfuegos, was suspended this Tuesday “due to lack of fuel.”

depending on the channel from YouTube for the rubberthe Villa Clara Leopards, who were already staying at the Pasacaballos hotel, received notification that they could not be transferred to the “5 de Septiembre” stadium, where the host team and local fans were waiting for them.

The situation is “tearful,” commented the sports medium on its Facebook profile. “It is impossible, honestly, not to say anything about it. If the current situation did not allow so much deployment of resources among the elite and this, we had to prioritize this event and forget about a superior competition for which we do not have the resources.” This Wednesday, the Leopards will have to play a doubleheader against the hosts from Cienfuegos.

The Island is going through an unprecedented energy crisis. Little has alleviated this crisis the shipment of fuel from Venezuela, which according to Reuters reports, last June sent 66,400 barrels per day, as well as the 700,000 barrels of fuel oilthat arrived in mid-July from Russia to the port of Matanzas.

Little deepened the official media Cubadebate about transportation problems due to lack of fuel. Although it evidenced “the silence in several territorial stations, and the classic ‘site under construction’ sign, it was seen again on the official page of our national sport, at the start of this shortened championship that is key to the immediate future of this discipline.

Ácido was the start of the U-23 National Series, which had its last edition in 2019 due to the covid-19 pandemic, and which, due to the disorganization, a tournament that was supposed to start on July 16, ended up starting this Tuesday with the participation of 16 teams, who will play 15 games in the qualifying phase, all seven innings.

“The imprecise actions of the Cuban Baseball Federation and its directors always end up generating more disappointments than the situation in the country itself,” journalist Francys Romero said in July. A disenchantment that has contributed to the bleeding of players looking for better horizons in collegiate leagues in the Dominican Republic, the US Major Leagues or in Canada.

In the last 61 National Baseball Series it was affected by blackouts, so games had to be scheduled at 10 in the morning. A schedule that affects the performance of the players and the actions of the teams. Until before this, only four playoff games had been recorded in the last 30 years, according to what was published Full Swing.
