US Caves on Cuba World Baseball Decision
I had a feeling, they would. The prospect of Major League Baseball and sports writers everywhere blaming President Bush for the cancellation of an exciting World Baseball Classic matchup was too much. The purported money "reason" had vanished once Fidel announced that all proceeds were going to Katrina victims.
So now, it is announced that the Treasury Dept. reversed course and Cuba will be allowed to participate in the Classic, which begins March 9th. We can't wait.
Also, if you want I wrote a response to Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria's idiotic editorial blasting Cuban baseball in the New York Times.
