Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina on Thursday handed the flag to Dominican Republic’s Winter Baseball champions, Santo Domingo’s Tigres del Licey, prior to their departure to compete in the Series of the Caribbean, starting Saturday at Isla Margarita, Venezuela.

Medina urged the local team to defend the patriotic colors with gallantry in the event which also gathers the champions from Mexico (Naranjeros Hermosillo), Venezuela (Navegantes, Magallanes), Puerto Rico (Indios, Mayagüez) and Villa Clara, the team from reintegrated Cuba.

"To place the Dominican flag’s colors high on Isla Margarita is the goal. The entire Dominican Republic is with the Tigres del Licey and what we expect is for this team to will raise the number of Caribbean series crowns it has and which the country also possesses," Medina said in the National Palace ceremony.
