Renovated La Romana ballpark
Tourists traveling to La Romana and Bayahibe from October through the end of January 2012 should include a night out at the La Romana ballpark. Renovations are under way at the Francisco A. Micheli Stadium in the northern part of the city. The stadium will be ready for the start of the Dominican Winter Professional Baseball League season on 16 October. The remodeling includes refitting the clubhouses, a conference room for meetings, improvements to the baseball player's locker rooms with more spacious lockers, toilets and showers, and a meals area. The playing field is being reconditioned so that the grass in the inner fields uses the same Bermuda grass as in the outer fields, a variety that adapts to local climate.
The La Romana Toros are the 2010-11 Baseball Champions. The team confirmed that Dean Treanor would be back to direct the team for the fourth consecutive year.
Treanor coaches the AAA division team, Indianapolis, of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The event is organized in coordination with the Dominican Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (Funglode).
Carnival Cruise port in Puerto Plata
Speaking to tourism industry executives meeting at the Be Live Marien last week, Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia announced that Puerto Plata would have its new private cruise ship port before the end of 2014.
Carnival Cruise Lines plan to build a US$65 million two-berth port facility in the Bay of Maimon, 10 minutes west of Puerto Plata. The development is five minutes from the Ocean World tourist attraction. Giora Israel, Carnival's vice president of Port Development said Dufry (duty free shops) would be a joint venture partner.
The construction will involve the dredging of a cruise ship channel into the bay. Land purchases were recently completed for the deal.
Carnival Cruise Line is the world's largest cruise ship operator with 10 cruise lines that own over 100 ships that visit 169 ports worldwide. The lines include Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn. Carnival and sister shipline Costa ships dock at La Romana port.
Construction will begin in 2012 and the first cruise ship arrival is scheduled for summer 2014.
While the project will be financed completely by the Carnival/Dufry group, port executives also envision the arrival of non-Carnival controlled ships.
Carnival will build and operate the cruise terminal and is expected to have complete control over the ship scheduling, passengers and the arrival area. Parking and facilities for the taxis and tour buses will be provided but this is expected to under the terms and procedures set forth by Carnival for an efficient cruise ship port operation.
The operation is expected to be a huge boon for the area, with the construction generating lots of jobs to be replaced later by the jobs generated by the servicing of ships and visiting passengers.
The port will be prepared to receive two ships with around 2,000 passengers and 500 crew members each at the same time.
