Isla de la Juventud is a baseball team in the Cuban National Series. Based in Nueva Gerona (on the Isle of Youth), the Toronjeros finished first in Group B of the league last season.

History[edit]

From their inception in 1977 until the mid-1990s, Isla de la Juventud was a perennial cellar-dweller in the National Series. However, since the 1998–99 season, when they took Industriales to a seventh game in the western final, they have been a playoff contender every year.
