Quote of the day – Persecuted baseball

Via Radio Martí, Orlando Chinea, Cuban baseball legend and former pitching coach for the Cuban national team now living in exile on what a game with the Castro dictatorship's visiting Industriales team means to him (translation by Capitol Hill Cubans):

"I don't have any reason to celebrate 50 years of the Industriales because Cuban baseball -- this baseball they come to represent here -- represents oppression against players, it represents repression, it's a cloistered and persecuted baseball.  I want to dedicate this game to all of the political prisoners of Cuba and, specially, to imprisoned contractor Alan Gross and everyone that is suffering there at this time."
