1962 Central American and Caribbean Games
From BR Bullpen
Puerto Rico claimed Silver at 3-2.
Cuba had a disappointing 2-3 finish, the only time in the 20th Century they did not get a Medal in baseball in the Central American and Caribbean Games. They were still rebuilding from the Cuban revolution but had several key contributors from future events in place. They were guided by former major leaguer Gil Torres.
Venezuela also went 2-3. A. Mendez led all hitters with a .500 average.
Colombia was last at 1-4.
