Cuban president welcomes baseball team

Havana, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Monday welcomed the team that participated in the 5th World Baseball Classic (WBC) and was among the four best teams.

The head of State arrived at Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport to welcome the team and hand over a bat with the now emblematic phrase ‘Team Asere’, which has become a hit on social media.

Diaz-Canel said that today the players will receive huge demonstrations of affection from the people, because the whole island felt every game.

‘You have marked a new stage in Cuban baseball,’ the president stressed.

On behalf of the team members, sports glory German Mesa, thanked the players for their cohesive work, and dedicated the result to the Cuban people. Mesa also highlighted the crow’s hostility during the semifinal game against the United States.

Also present at the welcoming ceremony were National People’s Power Assembly President Esteban Lazo, and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, in addition to other officials from the Government and the National Institute of Sports and Recreation (INDER).
