Agricultores defeated Portuarios in the sixth game of the final of the Elite League and in this way evened the match and forced the celebration of the seventh and final game that will decide which team will be the representative of Cuba in the very next Caribbean Series that will be held in Venezuelan lands.
As has been the case in each of the previous matches, the press conference took place and after a large number of questions without major journalistic relevance, until one of the representatives of the Juventud Rebelde newspaper, Osviel Castro Medel, asked Professor Carlos Martí the two most interesting questions of the day: What can be done to improve the Elite League? And how much truth was there in the rumors that this will be his last tournament?

Martí’s response was emphatic and without half measures: «To improve this Elite League, a number of things are needed. I am referring to logistics, I am referring to the attention given to the athletes, I am referring to looking for other amenities that a league of this level should have.”
Faced with the mirage that these playoffs have been, which was by no means a reflection that it was the regular stage of the tournament, he declared: «I think that here in the playoffs it has looked good, but the rest was a disaster. There was no this, there was no other; In other words, you have to make a monument to the players because they finished, the truth is that for the next series, those who are in charge of this have to take into account that the artists are the players, they are the ones who play, they are the ones there are to pay attention to them, they are the ones who have to raise their salaries, etc, etc, etc.”

Martí spoke without fear and without filters, he made it clear that the organization of the event has been a true fiasco and that only the popular support in this great final has given a different color to this first edition of the Elite League, that people thirsty for good baseball and above all he always supports his players.
Finally, and with tears in his eyes, he answered the last question: «Around the corner is my retreat, that’s all I have to say«. Judging by the emotion with which he pronounced these last words, everything points to the fact that the veteran helmsman from Granma is really leading his last matches and is about to do so undefeated in the finals, so far he has won four out of four, but still He has one match left to reach his fifth national trophy.
