Project Description

Event Description:

CUBABALL has partnered with C.A.P’S TOURS to offer a unique experience to baseball fanatics and lovers. An opportunity to experience Cuba through it’s national game – baseball. You’ll see Cuban National Series games in selected cities and you’ll have the unique opportunity to meet players and managers, some who made history, both in Cuba and in the USA, before and after 1959; you will meet with Cuban baseball officials and much more.

This trip offers more than just baseball – you’ll experience the people, the culture, the music, the politics, and the cities of a tropical paradise lost somewhere between the pre-revolution 1950’s and today. You will also be provided with an opportunity to help the youth of Cuba with voluntary donations of baseball equipment and school supplies.
