Making Good On Our Promise On Cuban Sports


As we mentioned at the end of 2014, Latino Sports was going to begin covering more sports from Cuba. We said this before the historic announcement made by President, Barak Obama and Raul Castro of Cuba.

Latino Sports has been covering some levels of Cuban sports since 1996; however, it had been difficult precisely for the reasons President Obama stated, “a U.S. policy that does not make sense.” In the past, Latino Sports has worked with the Cuban Sports Ministry, INDER and with other entities like Radio Rebelde and Cuba Deportes. We have always believed that sports has no flags and no borders. If an athlete, or team is good, then we have a responsibility as a sports information site covering the Latino community to cover that team, or athlete.

We predicted that relations would improve somewhat between our two countries and we congratulate President Obama for having the guts and political wisdom to normilize relations between our two countries.

That is why we decided to once again venture into covering more Cuban sports as Cuba has great athletes and teams that we believe our readers would like to know more of. As the giant sign in deep center field reads in the Latino Americano stadium: “Cuba: A Country of Champions.” We are moving to the forefront to cover more of these present and developing futue champions.

Stay tune and read the piece on the baseball game I saw yesterday here in Havana on the Cuban Baseball section of the site.
