The historical and political relationship between the United States and Cuba has been complicated and contentious, but baseball  has always been a common passion.    “Old-School” baseball fans will remember Tiant, Cuellar, Canseco, Pasqual, Perez, Oliva, Campanaris, and Minoso, and revel in current stars like Cespedes, Puig and Abreu.   But Cubans playing the game of baseball go back almost a century and a half!  And, one of sports great urban myths still abounds after a half of a century – a great “alternative history” speculation…a supposed “try-out” in Havana in 1951 by none other than a  law student turned eventual revolutionary, Fidel Castro.

This month, we’ll speak about Cuba’s baseball tradition that goes back 150 years –  “Old-School” baseball fans will remember Tiant, Cuellar, Canseco, El Duque Hernandez Pedroso, Pasqual, Perez, Oliva, Campanaris, and Minoso, and revel in current stars like Cespedes, Puig and Abreu – all hailing from the island country of the “clave” just 90 miles off the Florida coast.  And, one of sports great urban myths still abounds after a half of a century – a great “alternative history” speculation…a supposed “try-out” in Havana in 1951 by none other than a  law student turned eventual revolutionary, Fidel Castro.  With President Obama’s recent overtures to Cuba after a half a century of Cold War politics, how has and does the sport of baseball intersect with politics?
