|Estrellas and Fans Celebrate|
Sugarcane has long been the agricultural base of the country, and it is said that the sugarcane plantations are where baseball first became popular on the island. Workers on the plantations supposedly played baseball after working the fields, and the game then diffused to the rest of the population.
So, this series has special significance for Dominican fans, particularly for those from San Pedro de Macoris and La Romana, the home of the Estrellas and Toros respectively. Not to mention the town with the most baseball talent in the world (San Pedro de Macoris) is hosting a finals series. The first game is tomorrow, Wednesday the 19th.
