Today is Day One of the Serie del Carib, which runs through the end of the week. MLB Network is carrying the Venezuela-Dominican Republic game at 5pm Eastern, as well as the Mexico-Puerto Rico matchup at 10pm, so if you’re yearning for some live baseball action, here’s a nice little hold over. Maury Brown at The Biz of Baseball has the rest of the broadcast schedule, including the announcers.
There are no current Yankees (minors or majors) playing this year, but there are some notable ex-Yanks in the event, namely Felix Rodriguez, D’angelo Jimenez, Ruben Rivera and Jackson Melian. By far the best big leaguer playing is the Padres’ Adrian Gonzalez, who’s suiting up for Mexico and will be a teammate of Bill Pulsipher. Yes, that Bill Pulsipher. Jorge Aranguare Jr. of ESPN took a deeper look at each team’s roster.
Enjoy the games if you’re going to watch.
