2014 Caribbean Series

The fifty-sixth edition of the Caribbean Series (Serie del Caribe) was played in 2014. It was held from February 1 through February 8 of 2014 with the champion baseball teams of Cuba, Naranjas de Villa Clara; Dominican Republic, Tigres del Licey; Mexico, Naranjeros de Hermosillo; Puerto Rico, Indios de Mayagüez, and Venezuela, Navegantes del Magallanes. The games were played at Estadio Nueva Esparta in Margarita Island, Porlamar, Venezuela. Unlike previous Series, the five teams competed through a ten-game round robin schedule, each team facing the other teams once, followed by a final four playoff round. This was the first time since 1960 that a Cuban team took part.
