Genaro Urías, leader of the Hermosillo Municipal Baseball League, confirmed that the games were organized by the same players and sentenced that, if they happened again, they would be sanctioned: “Over the weekend we had an emergency that presented itself to us in two fields in the town. They held friendly duels, of which we made the presidents of those leagues see that such practices were not allowed, because the sanction is going to come for them, we cannot make use of the facilities until the authorities allow it, ”he declared.
