Three more Cuban players have disappeared from the World Cup of Women’s Baseball in Edmonton.
Ron Hayter, executive director of the Edmonton Baseball Federation, confirmed Tuesday the players were missing when the Cuban delegation showed up for closing ceremonies at Telus Field on Sunday evening.
Last week, the team lost another player, Odreisleisis Pequero Del Sol, who disappeared overnight from her quarters at the University of Alberta. The 21-year-old outfielder was later discovered to have defected with a boyfriend to the United States.
“But WHY???”ask pinks. “Don’t Cubans enjoy free healthcare?!
And I wonder–
Why, why, why, why, why THEY ran away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where THEY will stay-ay,
My little runaways,
Run, run, run, run, runaways.
