Films on Fridays: “Cuban Players in the United States”


As I think more about my recent trip to Cuba and the new agreement between MLB and the Cuban Baseball Federation, I still have a lot of questions. So, I’ll be doing more research on this over the next few weeks. One question I have, is what becomes of the players once they get to the U.S.? Can players who recently defected return to Cuba to visit family, or do travel restrictions remain?

A couple years ago, MLB Network produced a brief video on Cuban players and their experiences in the United States – check it out below. I particularly found the statements by Luis Tiant (around 4:12) concerning communication to be quite interesting.

 

Happy Friday!
