Caribbean Series

The Colombian Professional Baseball League (Spanish: Liga Profesional de Béisbol Colombiano) (LPB), is a professional baseball league based in Colombia. It is a six-team winter league that plays during the Major League Baseball offseason. The league's champion takes part in the Caribbean Series.


Colombian Professional Baseball League is commonly divided into three eras: from 1948 to 1958, from 1979 to 1988, and from 1993 to the present. In the middle of 2004 the Colombian Professional Baseball League was accepted in the Caribbean Confederation of Professional Baseball, but were not allowed to participate in the Caribbean Series until the level of play and the quality of baseball facilities improved.[1] They joined the series in 2020.

The league added two teams for the 2010–11 season: the Potros de Medellín (Medellín Colts), based in Medellín, Colombia, and the Águilas de Bogotá (Bogotá Eagles), based in Bogotá, Colombia. Additionally, the Toros (Bulls) moved from Sincelejo to Cali for economic reasons.

Two new teams were added to the league for the 2019-2020 season. The Gigantes de Barranquilla, and The Vaqueros de Montería. The Vaqueros went on to become league champions in their inaugural season, becoming the first team to represent Colombia in the Caribbean Series.

The LPB made their Caribbean Series debut in 2020, replacing the Cuban National Series who could not not send a representative due to visa issues.[1]


The league is televised by Cultiva Entertainment.[2] The league had an affiliation with the Yuma Scorpions of the Golden Baseball League for the 2009 season.[3]


It is sponsored in large part by Major League Baseball players as it is owned by the Renteria Foundation, a charity run by former Major League Baseball shortstop Édgar Rentería.[4] In addition, players such as former Major League Baseball shortstop Orlando Cabrera have owned teams.[5]


The league has six teams around the country. The season is played from October to January.[6] The top four teams at the end of the regular season, a first round robin phase of 50 games per team, advance to another round-robin (12 games for every team) with the two best teams contesting a best-of-seven final series to determine the league champion.[7]
