Pinar del Río is a baseball team in the Cuban National Series. Based in the western city of Pinar del Río, the "Vegueros" are historically one of the more successful teams in the Cuban National Series, winning championships in 1997 and 1998.

History

Prior to the 1992-93 Cuban National Series, two teams competed in the province of Pinar del Río: Forestales (also known as Pinar del Río during some seasons) and Vegueros. Vegueros was a bona fide powerhouse, winning the championship in 1978, 1981, 1982, 1985, 1987 and 1988. A 1992-1993 contraction of the league, in which eight teams were eliminated, caused Vegueros and Forestales to be combined into a single team.
