Judging by a Dec. 15 item, the U.S. government has highlighted the ridiculousness of its embargo on Cuba by barring the Cuban national team from playing in the inaugural World Baseball Classic.

Shouldn't America's Pastime bring the Americas together?

I think it is time we be proactive and seek reconciliation with Cuba, rather than our current policy of "wait until Castro dies and hope for something better."

What message are we sending to the Cuban people? They share our continent, our history, our roots and our blood.

Play ball!
