“Baseball love, Cuban style”

8 Comments

Here’s a colorful slice of Cuban baseball life from Michael Powell of the New York Times. No real narrative or story. Just an afternoon watching people playing baseball in an environment very, very different from that which you and I are likely used to. It’s a good read.

Everyone talks about how the thawing of Cuban relations is going to bring more big Cuban baseball stars to the United States. It’ll be just as interesting, and probably more significant, to see how it changes the lives of everyday Cubans and Americans.
