HistoryEdit

In 1977, Isla de la Juventud (then called Isla de los Pinos) received the opportunity to have an independent baseball team. Before 1976, Isla de la Juventud was part of La Habana Province and therefore did not have a baseball club.[1]

From their inception in 1977 until the mid-1990s, Isla de la Juventud was a perennial cellar-dweller in the National Series. However, since the 1998–99 season, when they took Industriales to a seventh game in the western final, they have been a playoff contender every year.
