The 29th Serie Nacional was won by Henequeneros, who were managed by Gerardo Junco. The team won the title by winning a playoff series versus the defending champion Santiago de Cuba.

The first for the championship between the first-place teams in each zona; and the second between the third-place teams of each zona. In the best-of-seven first-place series, Henequeneros of Zona Occidental defeat Santiago de Cuba of Zona Oriental, 4-2. In the best-of-five third-place series, Industriales (Zona Occidental) defeat Granma (Zona Oriental), 3-0.

Omar Linares of Vegueros wins his third batting championship with a .442 average, 76 hits in 172 at-bats. Industriales pitcher Lázaro Valle posts a 8 – 1, the best in the league while fellow capitalino, Osvaldo Fernández G. of Metropolitanos wins a league-leading 12 games.
