Caribbean Series 2023: TV schedule, channel, scores for baseball’s Serie del Caribe

The return of the World Baseball Classic after a six-year absence will get plenty of hype this spring, but fans don’t have to wait until it begins next month to watch competitive baseball. 

Days before pitchers and catchers report to MLB spring training, the Caribbean Series is set to get underway in Venezuela. The 65th edition of the beloved competition will feature eight teams representing winter leagues around Latin America, two more than last year’s event in the Dominican Republic. 

Colombia will try to defend its crown after upsetting the host Dominicans in the final, but this year’s home team will be motivated to come through for what are sure to be raucous crowds in Caracas and La Guaira.

In addition to the teams from those three winter leagues and standbys Mexico, Panama and Puerto Rico, this year’s event sees Cuba return to the competition and will also include a team from Curaçao.
