MLB’s Desire for Cuban Players Overshadowed by Ozzie

By Diane M. Grassi

“This is a good baseball town, and not to worry, you’re playing in front of the greatest baseball fans in the world.” None other than Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro, made that remark on March 28, 1999 at Estadio Latinoamericano in Havana, Cuba.

If one did not know better, such a quote could have been attributed to any number of Major League Baseball (MLB) team owners or the commissioner of MLB himself, Allan H. (Bud) Selig.
