In his first fight this Monday, against Guantanamo’s Yoel Tejeda, the great Frederic Zepeda became the new double king in Cuba with 438. The day before, he hugged Michel Henriquez, who served for two “mandates”. The largest producer of biangool.
El Gallo Mayor made this gift to himself when he turned 43 last Saturday, but it should not be neglected if he intends to maintain the tube lead as Yordanis Samon is very close to him with 427.
But who was the king of this type of hit in the history of Cuban championships?
When Javier Mendez of the capital said goodbye to baseball after 22 seasons, he left a record that seemed very hard to replicate as he tied 381
double. Granma’s Victor Bejerano had to play 24 seasons to overcome it, which happened on March 8, 2007 at the Vilfredo Pages stadium in Manzanillo, when he scored the last double of his career in the sixth inning against Ronald Garcia of La Isla . (382).
Nearly four years later, at Guillermont Moncada, Santiago’s Rolando Merino hit Felix Fuentes, who filed for Matanzas, with his 383 tubi in the seventh inning, and from that day, January 26, 2011, he took the throne as the new king of doubles. Cuba. Merino was the first to
exceeds 400 and set its quota at 405.
Then comes Michel Henriquez, who on 14 March 2015 at the Cristobal Labra in Pinero against Holguin hit 5–5 with three biangulars, the first of which in the third inning against Yunier Suárez helped him equalize with Merino.
In the sixth and seventh acts, tubas 406 and 407 were played against left-hander Rodolfo Soris, with whom Pinero’s Super 12 took the lead in the historical two-base hits ranking. An interesting fact happened to Michel. Was king twice.
At first he reached 410, but on March 27, 2016 at the José Ramón Cepero stadium in Ciego de Avila, during the semi-final play-off against Industriales, Ariel Borrero from Villa Clara, playing understudy with the Tigres , fired against Miguel Laera in the fourth inning of his tube. 411 to top the global list. A few days later, the orange Thug scored the last double of his career and left a record of 412 points.
Then Michel Henriquez reappears and on September 8, 2016 at Cristóbal Labra, he connects his double-ended 413 in the third inning with Aldo Conrado’s Aldo Conrado of Sancti Spiritus and regains his lead position.
Michel set the mark at 437 until Frédéric Zepeda hugged him on Sunday, rocking the tubi in act seven against Guantanamo’s Abelardo Mille in José Antonio Huelga.
The joint lead lasted several hours because a link was made a day later that left Cepeda as the first to rock 438 biangulars in Cuba.
