Those not yet in attendance are group coach Fernando Tatis, but the team manager is hoping to meet him on Friday after the trip he had to make to California.
Jose Gómez told DL that Tatis was still the leader of the ninth Creole that between June 4343 he would be looking for a place that would give him the Florida qualifiers for the Tokyo Olympic Games, next summer.
“There are no changes yet, he (Tatis) arrives today (Thursday) from the United States, and we have to meet tomorrow (this Friday), but he is still the captain of the team and so far he has expressed to us that yes, he has some personal situations that need to be resolved.” In San Diego, but he’s already back and so far we understand there should be no move, “said Gomez, the team manager.
The Dominican Republic is part of Group A along with the United States, Puerto Rico and Nicaragua in the disputed fair between them. In B are Colombia, Cuba, Canada, and Venezuela. The champion will qualify for Tokyo 2020 and the second and third places will advance to the last global qualifiers, which will be played in Taiwan between June 16 and 20, where there will be the last ticket for the winner.
Gomez explained that he called up a long list of Free Agent players such as Juan Francisco, Emilio, Jorge Bonifacio, Jimmy Paredes and Jean Marínez, given that there were so many odds and losses in a short event and he wanted to make sure he had enough materials.
This group will join other players who will be in minor leagues or alternative fields for major league teams.
The Dominicans are planning to travel to Florida on May 22 and have already had two empty games, on the 26th and 28th with Venezuela. At the moment they are in contact with group B members to make other commitments.
For the time being, and in a way to alleviate the lack of activity of the group that trains today from next week, there will be a series of empty matches between the teams as they negotiate to determine the competitors in the country.
“The effort is being made because this is the last chance we have to go to the Olympics and we are like someone who says ‘put all the meat on the grill’, because many of these guys will sign, from here to there, they will get it according to teams from Mexico, the United States and the Independent League, Visa applications will be submitted to us, there will be many adversities and that is why we want to have a large group of talented and seasoned players and from there they try to get things. ”Gomez said,“ Good defense, versatility and a good starting point. ”
