Juegue Pelota

It is official, the Cuban National Team will be playing in the World Classic. If you remember, in recent months I posted on how irritated I was that the United States had denied the Cuban team the opportunity to play in the classic based on historical Cuban sanctions.

Today I read the announcement on the MLB (Major League Baseball) website that the United States has allowed the Cuban team to participate.

This is something the Americans (or I should say the Department of Treasury as ridiculous as that sounds...) should have done right the first time, but I applaud the change of heart (or political influence) and wish the Cuban team good luck in the Classic.
