The character of Yoann Moncada is, along with that of Louis Robert, the most dominant figure on Cuba’s World Classic team. During his first game with the four letter pick, he was in fine form, with a couple of hits in two turns and a ticket.
Already in the second, last, preparatory match for the national team, which will debut on March 8 against the Netherlands, he gets a ticket into his first bat.
But in the top of the third, with three balls counted and one hit out and with Andy Ibañez on first for a strikeout, Yoann Moncada took advantage of shooting into the area and sent the ball bouncing right and center behind the fence to break the cellophane party.

The way Moncada looks is very hopeful. Since arriving in Taiwan, he hasn’t even missed an inning, hitting 3-for-3 with two walks. His only extra base hit was the aforementioned run.

Alongside Yoan Moncada, La Pineda’s Andy Ibañez was one of those who shone in attack since his arrival. The bartender from La Juventude was down 3-2 during the first game and to the end of that note he had a 2-2 in the second game. Adding four hits in five shifts has a perfect average of . 800.
Another MLB who saw action in the standoff was rookie Ruinis Elias. Who was not allowed to run in one turn, although they beat him. Luis Miguel Romero also made his debut, also without runs in one round.
