Managua, Nicaragua, Wins Caribbean Zone

WASHINGTON, PA (July 15, 2023) - Managua, Nicaragua, has won PONY Baseball’s Caribbean Zone to qualify for the 2023 DICK’S Sporting Goods PONY League World Series.

Managua defeated the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Ecuador, and Chiriqui, Panam, before taking down Panama City 3-1 to win the Caribbean Zone.

Head coach Rene Torres believes that the team’s pitching is its biggest strength and is proud of the heart the team displayed in the Caribbean Zone tournament. 

This is the first time a team from Nicaragua has qualified for the PONY League World Series in the tournament’s 71 years of existence. Rene is excited for the opportunity to represent Nicaragua.

“This is the first time a team from Nicaragua is participating in the World Series. We are looking forward to it and blessed,” said Rene. “This will open a lot of doors for Nicaragua PONY Baseball.”

The last Caribbean Zone champion to win the PONY World Series was in 2007 when Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, took home the title. The Caribbean Zone as a whole has won seven World Series titles, all of which have been claimed by teams from Puerto Rico.

Managua starts tournament play at Lew Hays PONY Field on Saturday, August 12, at 2:30PM/ET, with a matchup against the East Zone champion.
