After 12 years of raising the pennant for the last time, the Yucatan Lions reached their longed fourth title of the Mexican Baseball League MLB.
Leones have celebrated four League titles. The first was in the year 1957 when they fought against the Eagles of Veracruz in their home. More recently, the Kukulcán stadium has witnessed the next three titles, in August 20, 1984 when the felines won the championship at home, defeating the Indians of Ciudad Juarez. In the year 2006, on August 27 in a series against the Sultans of Monterrey, they won their third LMB star; and finally the victory of June 28, 2018 against the “regios” again.
In the city of Merida the fans have gone out to the streets to celebrate the pennant, marching by the caravan on which their baseball idols toured the state capital, waving flags, saying cheers and waiting for the longed photograph next to the trophy.
