Away Games

Since Cuban baseball players have been flocking to the U.S., it seemed a natural that Major League Baseball would reach out to Cuba now that travel and other restrictions have been eased.  The NBA has beat them to it.

In just a few weeks, the basketball people are hosting a camp for Cuban youth.  MVP Steve Nash and Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo are adding star power to the effort.

I am still hoping that eventually Cuba will be in baseball's expansion plans, but if the kids want to play basketball, that's okay too.

I wonder if there are many 7 ft. Cuban boys?
