Cuban President praises Island debut in U.S. World Series Baseball

Havana, Aug 16 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel praised Wednesday his country's debut in the U.S. Little League World Series, hosted by the United States for over seven decades.

The president tweeted that Cubans are proud of little baseball players from eastern Bayamo representing us in the U.S. Williamsport City, Pennsylvania, where, in the opening of the tournament, they will face the Musashi Fuchu team from Tokyo, champion of the regional league of Japan.

The head of State noted that Cuban baseball players will make history today with their debut at 17:00, local time, on the field of the Volunteer Stadium against a rival with credentials in these leagues during the versions of 2000, 2003 and 2013; in the last two, they returned with the trophy.

The little Bayamese champions told their fans, “We are going to play with our hearts,” and they are convinced they will give their best on the field to achieve a good result in the competition, scheduled from August 16 to 27.
