Beermen start training for Commissioner’s Cup

PBA Media Bureau

The San Miguel Beermen are expected to begin their preparation for the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Friday after the team was given time off as a reward for winning the Philippine Cup title more than a week ago.

Beermen coach Leo Austria made the confirmation over the weekend, but said not all will be present for the start of their Commissioner’s Cup buildup for various reasons.

“Balik na kami sa Friday, training na kami uli for the Commissioner’s Cup,” said Austria. “Pero hindi pa rin naman lahat makaka-balik na pero yung iba umpisa na.”

“May mga iba na nasa abroad, dun nag-bakasyon. May iba dito lang naman nagsiuwian sa probinsya,” added Austria, who will have his own vacation with his family this week.
