The Agricultores baseball players were euphoric after being crowned in a spectacular way in the First Elite League of Cuban baseball, after ousting a battle-hardened Portuarios in seven games.

Reliever Joel Mojena, the great architect of the victory of the eastern team, confessed that it was based mainly on his straight hit and slider under his arm.

Confidence is worth everything, and that's what they gave me. I asked the manager to relieve, which is what I like the most, and everything went well. I am grateful for the support of the public, I went out to give them everything," he declared at the end of the game.

Osvaldo Abréu was the author of the key hit in the Sunday game, held at the Mártires de Barbados stadium in this city.

Since we were little we were taught that sports is for fun, and that in the end leads you to victory. I told everyone that Portuarios was not going to give up, but we were able to pull out all the stops for the result," he said.

For his part, Yordanis Alarcón, who was unstoppable throughout the week, highlighted the integration achieved by the players from Las Tunas and Granma.

I am very happy for the collectivism we achieved, we were always focused on being champions. The mentor Carlos Martí managed to put everything together well to obtain this result, he is the main responsible, he said.

His brother Yosvany recalled that the whole team was in very good shape, especially offensively.

We all had a good relationship, we never had the great opportunity to play together before but we got along very well, and it was one team on the field, he commented.

Finally, Guillermo Avilés thanked the fans for their support and acknowledged the commitment of his rivals from Portuarios.

The final was quite difficult, but with everyone's determination we won the title. Desire, unity and confidence in the work we did during the preparation were the key factors, he said.

In addition to the title, Agricultores guaranteed its ticket to the Gran Caracas 2023 Caribbean Series, and joins WildCats KJ74 (Curaçao), Federales de Chiriquí (Panama) and Tigres del Licey (Dominican Republic), teams that have already qualified for the regional event.
