Miami, FL  – Alterna’TV, a subsidiary of Latin America’sleading satellite service provider SatMex, in partnership with Latin American Sports (LAS) channel, presents the 2013 Caribbean Series, the annual professional baseball tournament for the winter season’s winning teams from the Confederación de Béisbol Profesional del Caribe (Caribbean Professional Baseball Confederation).  The Confederation includes teams from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Mexico. This year’s tournament games, which take place at the new Sonora Stadium, in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, will begin airing on the  Latin American Sports (LAS) channel, carried on DISH PUERTO RICO (channel 856), beginning February 1 through 7 (see schedule below for airtimes).

The Caribbean Series, akin to America’s World Series, has been a longstanding tradition among baseball fans in Latin America and the Caribbean countries, first played in 1946.   Each year, the series is hosted by one of the league’s participating countries.  In 2014, the series moves to Venezuela. Alterna’TV and LAS hold exclusive broadcast rights for The Caribbean Series for the next year in the Puerto Rican market only.

This year’s Caribbean Series introduces a new competition format that includes a seventh day game for the grand finale.  As in previous series, there are two rounds during which all teams will play each other twice.  Then, the two best teams play the final game for the championship.  Changes in the system are in an effort to create a more equitable tournament and guarantee a final game.
