Orientales (Serie Nacional)

From BR Bullpen

The Orientales (Easterners) were one of the first four teams in the Cuban Serie Nacional when it began in 1962. Based in Santiago de Cuba Province, they won their only title in 1966-1967 and lost a tie-breaking playoff to the Industriales in 1962-63. The Orientales vanished after winning the '67 title when the league expanded and reorganized.
