Cuba will play tonight what will probably be one of the most important games of its proud baseball history. The World Baseball Classic (WBC) is an extremely prestigious and important event, because the criollos are facing professional baseball athletes. They are playing against the cream of the baseball crop of our planet.
In tonight's second game for Cuba in Round 2 of the WBC, Cuba must win to advance to the next contest. Otherwise it is curtains and they have to go go home. Cuba is used to this type of challenge, and I am sure they will play the best they can. Talent and a big heart they have.
Win or lose, I am very proud of Team Cuba. Life at times is full of disappointments. When we fall, we must get up and continue.
At 11:00 p.m. tonight, let us all yell: GO CUBA!
