  • I saw the baseball game between Cuba and Canada yesterday evening. It was a terrifically exciting game, a true pitching duel with plenty of strike outs on both sides and excellent fielding, especially from the Cuban team. In the 5th inning, Cuba made a couple of errors which the Canadians were quick to pounce on, getting two on base and then smashing a home run deep over the centerfield fence.

    The crowd was large and spirited, including a sizeable Cuban section of supporters. My son was able to get autographs on his Matanzas Cocodrilos t-shirt from a couple of the Cuban players, which was a wonderful gesture. All in all, we had a great time. And of course, Canada won 3-1.

    (A small detail: the baseball games are being played in Ajax, Ontario which is a suburb a few miles east of Toronto.)
