SIX UNSIGNED PLAYERS DECLARED INELIGIBLE TO PLAY IN LIGA

The Mexican League Assembly has ruled that six players will not be able to play in the Liga this summer due to not having signed contracts. The two most notable names are former major league first baseman Erubiel Durazo (pictured), who hit .245 in 14 games for Monterrey last year, and longtime outfielder Luis Arredondo, the Mexican League’s all-time stolen bases leader who batted .338 and swiped 31 sacks in 2009 at the age of 38.

Others ruled ineligible to play in the Mexican League this season include pitchers Antonio Osuna, Emil Kamar and Alonso Beltran plus catcher Julio Cesar Parra. Osuna spent all or part of eleven seasons in the majors.

The Assembly also voted to begin the 2010 League Championship Series with two games at the Southern Zone champion’s ballpark, alternating annually with the Northern Zone.
