He also pointed out that the competition format could change and valued the successful development of the regional classic in Panama City.
According to the head of the CBPC, it was never thought of suspending the series, despite the reorganization of the event at the last minute after the withdrawal of the Barquisimeto headquarters due to the pressures of the U.S. government on Venezuela
Puello clarified that Panama’s entry into the CBPC as a full member will continue on the agenda, which also includes Cuba and other countries in the region.
According to the director, Panama and Cuba will not receive the money awards despite they won the series played the first years of the Tournament, at the Rod Carew Stadium.
The president of the Caribbean entity explained there is a contract between the CBPC and the Federation of Caribbean Professional Players, which forbids payment to non-Confederation nations.
He also acknowledged that work is being done to organize a Caribbean Series in the territory of the United States because it would represent greater economic income to the regional institution as a result of contracts with local television stations.
