Dominican Round Robin Playoffs Begin

It kind of snuck up on me.  Defending champion Escogido Leones and the Toros Este snuck into the round robin event with the only two teams who played over .500, Cibaenas Aguilas and Oriente Estrallas.  It will be interesting to see how competetive these round robins are.  Sometimes, how a team finishes during the regular season has no bearing once the round robin begins.

Since the season has ended myworld lists some of the leauge leaders plus our All Dominican Winter League team.

Batting Leader: Jean Segura (Gigantes) .324

Homerun Leader: Juan Francisco (Licey) and Marcell Ozuna (Gigantes) 9

RBIs: Mauro Gomez (Escogido) 38

Stolen Bases: Eugenio Velez (Toros) 20

On Base Plus Slugging: Juan Francisco (Licey) .944

ERA: Daniel Cabrera (Escogido) 2.16

Wins: Daniel Cabrera (Escogido) and Tony Pena Jr (Aguilas) 5

Strikeouts: Fabio Castro (Gigantes) and Jose de Paula (Gigantes) 42

Saves: Jairo Asencio (Toros) 12

It is interesting to note the only two teams to have a record over .500 had only one player (Pena) leading in the above categories.  If you looked at the league leader list you would have thought Gigantes was the best team, but they didn’t even make the playoffs.
