Guaynabo Wins Caribbean Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (July 25, 2022) - Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, has won PONY Baseball’s Caribbean Zone to qualify for the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series. 

Coach Geovannie Santiago describes his team as being very balanced, with a good offense and defense, along with power, speed, and pitching depth. 

Santiago reports that their record for the year was 61-5, winning four championships. 

“We also went undefeated in the Caribbean Zone qualifiers,” Santiago said. “We went undefeated against teams from Panama, Bonaire, Honduras, and an AOBA host team.” 

In the Caribbean Zone tournament, Puerto Rico dominated on both sides of the ball, outscoring its opponents 74-5.

The team expects to have a great time at the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series. Santiago expects tough competition, but he believes they are ready to compete and will bring a championship back to Puerto Rico.

The 2022 tournament will be Guaynabo’s second appearance in the World Series, after its loss in the semi-finals in 1978 to Joliet, IL. 

Although Guaynabo has only one previous appearance, the team has other connections to the PONY World Series. Guaynabo’s roster includes a player named Luis Matos, whose father not only played Major League Baseball for seven seasons, but also played in the 1993 PONY World Series for the runner-up Bayamon, PR, squad.

Puerto Rico will play its first game in the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series against Chinese Taipei at 8:00 PM/ET on Friday, August 12, at Lew Hays  PONY Field in Washington, PA.
