Ironically, the game played by the American class enemy is Cuba’s national sport: baseball. But in Cuban politics, things are less sporty.
Players of the Cuban national baseball team prepare to cool off at their home stadium in Havana. Baseball, imported from the United States in the mid-nineteenth century, is Cuba’s national sport. Comrade Fidel Castro sometimes opened “Juego” with the first ball, as American presidents do. In 1869, baseball was outlawed by the Spanish colonial authorities – the sport was considered a pastime for vandals and independence. Madrid, however, could not prevent Cuba’s independence or its transformation into broad dependence on the United States. But since the 1959 coup, Washington’s word on Cuba has fallen out of favor. Fidel was in charge until 2011, then his brother Raul, and meanwhile Miguel Diaz-Canel, with Raul Castro (soon to be 92) still holding the reins. Power is firmly established despite the economic crisis, repression and immigration. There is a lack of everything in the country, including hope, for which the United States bears responsibility, as the regime has always blabbered. The weekend ‘election’ for parliament was a charade. There were 470 candidates available for the 470 seats, all of which were approved by the Communist Party, and most of them were Communist Party members anyway. Competition is only good for a baseball field.
