What is the difference (if any) between this and the Professional_Baseball_League_of_Puerto_Rico? Are the Santurce Cangrejeros a part of this league?--Shawn 19:41, 21 August 2006 (EDT)

It is the same league, the offical name Liga de Beisbol Profesional de Puerto Rico. The Canrejeros moved to Manatí (becoming the Atenienses de Manatí) a few years ago. --MichaelEng 23:29, 22 August 2006 (EDT)

Is 2004's Cheo Cruz Jose Cruz Sr.? - --Mischa 18:44, 26 March 2008 (EDT) Yes, it's the same.

I found a reference to Cruz managing in the Caribbean Series in 2003. - --Mischa 09:28, 31 March 2008 (EDT)

Could John Herstein be John Herrnstein? - --Mischa 09:08, 14 February 2012 (EST)

It's spelled Herrnstein, but it's the same time frame so it's almost certainly him. I've made the change. --Philippe 10:55, 14 February 2012 (EST)

This league is now known as the Liga de Béisbol Profesional Roberto Clemente, or Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League. Not sure if we want to change the title of the page or just make a note in the article. Alex (talk) 09:03, 14 July 2015 (EDT)

-So where do they fit into the minors system? Class A, AA etc. Oaktree_b (talk) 20:49, 1 February 2016 (EST)

It's a winter league, so it does not fit in the minor league classification system, but it would rate at AAA+, as most players are either established major leaguers, from professional leagues elsewhere (Japan, KBO) or AAA players. Very few guys from the lower minors except as roster fillers. --Philippe (talk) 04:24, 2 February 2016 (EST)

I think it's more like AAA. League factors for winter leagues are in the mid-80s last I checked, which is the same range as AAA. - --Mischa (talk) 12:20, 2 February 2016 (EST)
