Cuban Baseball

Picture

Multi-City Tour, Cuba
Monday, November 4, 2019  to  Sunday, November 10, 2019

There's one common element that can bring Cuba to a fever pitch: baseball. The sport originally landed in Cuba in the 1860s along with citizens returning from travels abroad in the United States and with American sailors pulling into Cuban ports. Baseball took the island nation by storm and has firmly rooted itself in Cuban culture. The Cuban League was founded in 1878 and in 1899 professional players from the league formed the All Cubans, which was the first Latin American team to tour the United States.
