[edit] Format

The league has six teams. The season lasts from October to January. The top four teams at the end of the regular season (50 games per team) advance to another round-robin of 12 games per team with the two best teams contesting a best-of-seven final series to determine the league champion.

[edit] History

In the middle of 2004 season, the league was accepted in the Confederación de Béisbol del Caribe, making it eligible for participation in the Serie del Caribe. The LCBP hopes to develop baseball in the country so that it can play in the Caribbean Series at some point. The current league director is Edinson Rentería, who has been in the position since 1999. The league's top two teams are the Eléctricos de Barranquilla and Tigres de Cartagena, who have won the last four championships.

Bogotá and Medellín were new teams for the 2010-11 season, but the season was cancelled due to bad weather on December 8, 2010.
