The FBAPR decided that each team will play six Sunday's double-headers for a 12-game regular season. Clubs will then compete in the semifinals and finals in the different Divisions (best-of-five series). The qualified teams will face each other in round-robin play at the Carnival of Champions. A national best-of-five semifinal will follow and the winner will compete in a best-of-seven championship series.

"It was a successful meeting," commented José Daniel Quiles Rosas, FBAPR President. "We will now be looking for the government's permission to open ballparks to fans."
