Ciego de Ávila is a baseball team in the Cuban National Series. Based in Ciego de Ávila Province, the Tigres have spent most of its history in the bottom reaches of the standings.
However, in recent seasons, the team has turned their fortunes around, making it to the 2011 Series Nacional final (losing to
Pinar del Rio in six games). The following season, the Tigres bounded back to the finals again, this time winning their first ever Series Nacional over perennial favourites Industriales in six games. The Tigres have continued their run of form since, winning back-to-back championships in 2015 and 2016.
