Photo of the day – A grateful Cuban exile celebrates America’s independence

Cuban baseball superstar Yasiel Puig, who defected to the U.S. from communist Cuba in search of freedom, celebrates his first 4th of July in America as a free man.

Via Breitbart:

Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Yasiel Puig did not experience freedom until he successfully defected from Cuba--after numerous failed attempts--in the summer of 2012.

[...]

Part of the reason Puig plays with an infectious joy on the baseball field, as if he is unburdened, is because in America, he no longer has to live day-to-day worrying about what an oppressive government may do to him.

  • Love Yasiel! Friends in the local Cuban community have arranged an event, bus to Dodger Stadium and right field (Yasiel's position) tickets to cheer him on Cuban style. I can't remember when there's been this much Dodger excitement in town.
