LPB 2010

In 2010, Major League Baseball authorized Augusto Ávila Penabad and Rafael Ávila (at the time a vice president with the Los Angeles Dodgers) to run a new winter professional baseball league. The Liga Profesional de Beisbol or known as LPB started under the sponsorship of Claro with four teams: Los Santos, Herrera, Veraguas and Panama. The league lasted only one season due to poor logistics, economics and no support from main TV stations. Only UHF RCM Television bought the TV rights.
The season ran from December 12, 2009, until February 15, 2010.[11]
