MAYOR JUAN CARRILLO SOBERANIS INAUGURATES SABATINA BASEBALL LEAGUE
The Mayor inaugurated the Sabatina Municipal Baseball League “José Luis ‘Triko’ García” at the “El Pescador” baseball field. This league was founded in 1999 and reactivated in 2016, at the beginning of this administration, after six years of inactivity.
The Mayor, Juan Carrillo Soberanis, presented uniforms to the players and spoke about his commitment and support for sports activities, which improve health and quality of life. He also thanked municipal and state agencies who have assisted, including the Institute of Sports and Recreation, directed by Natanael Gallegos Salinas.
The league will consist of five teams, Toros Campeón, Carniceros, Sol Zorro Oaxacos, Trikos y Generación 85, who are managed by Iván Lugo, Manuel Alcocer, Ariel Santizo, Adrián Barragán y Héctor Gil, respectively.
The Mayor said, "In Isla Mujeres different sports are practiced, but definitely one of the favorite among the islanders is baseball. I encourage the players and managers to give their best in each game, always remembering that the priority is to have fun and have healthy times together, because they are an example for the children and pride of their families and fans."
Names are given of officials in attendance and of Ariel "El Picho" Magana who was important baseball promoter in Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo, and Yucatan. The mayor has worked in a coordinated manner with the three levels of government for the benefit of sports activities in Isla Mujeres.

The Cahuameros team of Isla Mujeres Nueva Generación, will travel to Playa del Carmen on Saturday, where they will face Los Dorados, who achieved a significant advantage by winning the last two matches in Isla Mujeres.
The Isla Mujeres team must win both games to remain in this Final competition of the Major Basketball League. If they lose one game, they will be automatically eliminated. If they win on Saturday, the second game will be on Sunday. They have two camiones (vans/buses) provided without cost to transport them from Gran Puerto at 6:30 and will return immediately after the game, for those who wish to go.

Two sailboats dropped out of the Sol al Sol Regatta
Dos veleros se retiran.. [+] Ver masFull article at this link
Two sailboats dropped out of the Sol al Sol Regatta, leaving only six in the competition. The "Midnight Sun" suffered a rupture of its hull when it hit another boat in the bay of St. Petersburg. At night the boat "I Believe" returned to port due to problems, which are apparently from damage, according to members of the organizing committee. The former boat was the only one in the Non Spinnaker Class and the latter boat had been competing in Class B.
The damage to the Midnight Sun wasn't serious, and they later tried to have it repaired at "Longnoat" Key, and returned to St Petersburg to have it repaired at a shipyard, apparently. It is not known why the "I Believe" dropped out, but it is presumed it was because of some damage.
An account is given of their positions yesterday afternoon.
You can see their current positions HERE.
At 11am, Tattoo remains in the lead and in first place among the Class A boats, while last year's champion, "After You" is in first place for Class B. "Equinox" is in last place (and second in Class B). Among the other Class A boats, "It's Only Money" is in third and "My Time" is in fourth, so I'm guessing "50/50" is in second but my cursor isn't picking it out of the 'pack' in the graphic.
Celebrating 500 years of Catholic faith
Celebrarán los 500 años de la llegada de la fe [+] Ver masFull article at this link
On May 19 and 20, a week of spiritual activities will culminate with the arrival of Bishop Pedro Pablo Elizondo, bishop of the Cancun-Chetumal prelature, who will inaugurate a historic museum in a wing of the parish of the Immaculate Conception.
The inauguration is scheduled for May 19th at 7pm, according to parish priest Raul Sanchez Alonso who was supervising the works of adaptation of the space and the painting of the property.
These events will commemorate the arrival of the Catholic faith in Isla Mujeres, remembering that in March it was 500 years since the arrival of the expedition of Francisco Hernandez de Cordova in Isla Mujeres, who came from Cuba in 1517, and the subsequent construction of what would be the first Hispanic convent in America, in the continental zone of Boca Iglesia.
A maritime procession was initially planned up to the ruins of the church, but no authorization was given by the government because the land is in the hands of private individuals. There is a plan to postpone the event until next year, if the situation is more favorable then.
The schedule for the religious conference will be released on Monday and will include speakers and singers from other states in Mexico and from the Dominican Republic, with events in the evening in front of the church, on the Town Square, including singer songwriter Roy Mendoza.
