Diaz-Canel highlights dignity and dedication of Cuban baseball players – Prensa Latina
âAs we write the history of these difficult days, a chapter should be devoted to the #Cuba team. Despicably harassed by a group of mercenaries, our baseball players have elevated dignity to the highest level. They made the adversary’s shamelessness more visible, “the president wrote on his Twitter account.
The Cuban team, already eliminated from the tournament after losing two games in the first phase, radiated fighting spirit and had all the courage necessary to face verbal offenses and posters against the Olympic spirit.
The intention of a group of people in the stadium was to destabilize the Cuban athletes, coaches and other members of the delegation, who immersed themselves with ethics and fair play in the pursuit of victory.
For these actions, the Cuban Baseball Federation (FCB) sent a note to the United States government, as the host nation, and to the organizing committee, which was to ensure the safety of all participants in the competition, which was taking place in Florida.
In addition, the Cuban team have been affected by the defection of infielder Cesar Prieto upon his arrival in the United States and the late delivery of visas by the American embassy in Havana.
