So far, the Nicaraguan LBPN (Liga Nicaragüense de Beisbol Profesional) was one of the few baseball leagues in the world that played despite the coronavirus. But since yesterday, the league has put the season on hold.
During the season, players were afraid to get contaminated. Eventually, one of the coaches of the league, Carlos Aranda of Las Fieras del San Fernando was tested positive as he was bothered by the symptoms since May 11: coughing, fever, and fatigue. Due to these symptoms, he went to the hospital where he was tested. Eventually on May 17 Aranda, team manager Norman Cardoze, and his son got the results of the testing.
Unfortunately, Armada passed away the other day, which is the reason for postponing the season.
The 12-team league will be put on hold until June 5 as the Nicaraguan Superior Baseball Commission announced yesterday. What will happen after June 5 is still unclear.
