This month’s 12-page BBM has a section with 24 stories that first appeared on the blog in December, and you’ll find final regular season standings for the Mexican Pacific League as well as Caribbean Series circuits in Puerto Rico, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. We’ve got standings for both the Mexican Northwest League and the Academy Rookie League, too. The top 5 statistical leaders in 14 different batting and pitching categories for the Mex Pac are included, as is a list of individual stat leaders in 13 categories for each of the eight LMP teams.

BBM’s “Ballparks of Mexico” series includes a full-color photo of Culiacan’s Estadio General Angel Flores along with some pertinent information on the largest winterball stadium in Mexico, you’ll get a list of 16 links to other websites with ties to baseball South of the Border, and there’s a one-page “Report Card” on BBM’s progress from 2010 by editor Bruce Baskin.
