It’s time for baseball in the Dominican Republic! Los Toros del Este will see action this Friday, October 10th in a pre-season game in aid of the Fundación Río Salao, a project working towards the touristic, cultural and economic development of Río Salao area of La Romana.
This exhibition game will be held between the Toros del Este of La Romana, receiving the visit of the Estrellas Orientales (from San Pedro de Macoris) at the Francisco Micheli A. stadium (also called “el Corral de los Toros“) here in La Romana starting at 6pm.
Río Salao Project
All funds raised at the game on Friday, will be destined to the Fundación Río Salao, whose aim is to beautify the Río Salao area in La Romana by painting the facades of the houses in vibrant Caribbean colors and later to create a “tourist alley” with small businesses selling souvenirs and crafts.
Moreover, on Thursday October 16th, the Estadio Francisco A. Micheli stadium will be the stage for the inaugural game of the Dominican Winter League season 2014-2015, with another game between the Toros del Este and the Estrellas Orientales.
Another event that raises funds for the Río Salao Project will be the MOZOS FAMOSOS dinner, which will be held on Saturday, November 8th; where the most prominent figures from La Romana and Casa de Campo community will act as the waiters and waitresses throughout the entire event – no doubt much to the amusement of our guests!!
