Díaz-Canel celebrates Cuba’s progress in World Baseball Classic

Havana, Mar 12 (Prensa Latina) The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, celebrated today the advancement of the national baseball team to the quarterfinal round of the World Baseball Classic.

“Get up guys, you have excited an entire country,” said the head of state on his Twitter account, where previously he shared his delight at the results of the Caribbean team against Chinese Taipei.

In that social network, Prime Minister Manuel Marrero highlighted the performance of the Caribbean nation in the World Baseball Classic, as well as stressed that this sport is synonymous with passion and joy for the island.

When there was a five-fold tie in group A of the World Baseball Classic, in which all the teams accumulated two victories and the same number of defeats, Cuba went first in the bracket for the fewest number of runs allowed divided between the putouts made (15 runs in 108 outs), as established by the regulations of the event.

The second classified in section A is Italy, which beat the Netherlands this morning 7-1. Both teams will leave for Japan to attend the quarterfinals.
