For their part, the players spoke after their arrival in the country before the VTV cameras, where they were excited about the participation they will have in the tournament.
“There are a lot of players with a lot of experience on the team, young guys with fresh arms so we have a chance. Outside of the play you can talk a lot but when the game starts we'll see where we are”, Simmons said.
For his part, Schoop stressed that the event will serve the players as preparation for the World Baseball Classic to be held next March.
"We prepared very well and this is also going to be part of the Classic and it would be good to show that we also play good ball and we are here not to participate but to win the Caribbean Series," Schoop explained.
