    Pinar del Rio is the most western province in Cuba. It is where the best cigar in the world are made. The Vinales Valley is located in Pinar del Rio. It is a sensational natural wonder with its bizarre hilllocks rising above the plain.

RF Luis Giraldo Casanova, "Mr. Baseball" and 2B Yobal Duenas played for them too. Other notable players who have played there are Pitcher Rogelio Garcia who used to own one of the best forkballs in Cuban history; Cuban defectors Chicago White Sox Jose Contreras; Tampa Bay Danys Baez; New York Mets Alain Soler. Cuban prospect Juan Miguel Miranda also played for them and is now in the Dominican Republic waiting to sign a contract.

    National Series team articles in Wikipedia

    Hi there-

    I found this forum while researching a series of Wikipedia articles on teams in the Cuban National Series. The articles are very skeletal, and are probably full of bad information, but they're a start on having a nice resource on these teams and their players.

    You can start here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industriales and go from there. Please do not hesitate to contribute what you know!

    I am now in the process of creating basic articles on the Cuban national team stars of the 80s and 90s, e.g., Omar Linares, Orestes Kindelán, Germán Mesa, et al.

    Other useful pages:
