The central Mexico state of Guanajuato will be the site of a number of exhibition games between Mexican League teams competing in the so-called Bicentennial Cup tournament. The Monclova Acereros, Laguna Vaqueros, Chihuahua Dorados and the defending Liga champion Saltillo Saraperos will play contests in seven cities between February 26 and March 7.

The tournament is being organized in part by the Acereros. Monclova general manager Victor Favela and new manager Mario Mendoza attended a press conference last week along with city and state officials from Guanajuato to unveil some of the Bicentennial Cup schedule and to stress the tourney will bring a high level of baseball to the Bajio region. Guanajuato is actually located closer to Mexico City to the south than to the four northern cities that will comprise the competition.

The first game is scheduled for February 26 in Silao when Monclova faces Chihuahua.
