Team Presentation

The next professional baseball tournament will commence tomorrow on October 20th with the BHD-Leon Cup. Luis Emilio Rodriguez Amiama, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the team, along with general manager Pablo Peguero, led the meeting with media representatives. Rodriguez Amiama noted the general management of the team and the Office of Baseball Operations has been given full support and they feel a winning team has been selected. The Central Romana Corporation delivered the team’s uniforms to the president of the Toros del Este  during the conference, and Peguero proclaimed hiring Guerrero will prove vital to the team’s success, and that with valuable veterans the team has great potential to win the title in the next championship.

“The talent of the Toros is abundant; we have many promising rookies and an example of that is that we were the team that debuted the most players in the majors last season,” Pablo Peguero said, “Further proof of the quality of our young players is that the next tournament will have Manuel Margot and Jorge Mateo, who were first selections of our team at LIDOM rookie draft 2014 and 2015, respectively. Don’t be surprised if our first pick this year, Sierra Magnauris also plays in the upcoming championship.”

In the conference, Aramis Liriano, representing the Cervecería Nacional Dominicana, a company that traditionally supports Los Toros, said that “Presidente beer has always accompanied Dominicans in their most important moments of celebration.
