Michel Abreu

The 2001-2002 Cuban season featured the only championship to date by Holguín in the Cuban Serie Nacional. Home run leader Michel Abreu (pictured) won the MVP while Kendry Morales won Rookie of the Year after setting several rookie marks. Pedro Luis Lazo led in wins, Osmani Urrutia in average and José Contreras in ERA. The Súper Liga was played for the first time and was dominated by Frederich Cepeda offensively while Maels Rodríguez threw what would be the only no-hitter in Súper Liga history. The four star infielders of the Cuban national team of the 1980s and 1990s all played their final season.
