Cuban national baseball team trains in Mexico
After arriving in Puebla on Saturday to train for the 2nd World Baseball Classic (WBC) (March 5-23) the Cubans checked out the Hermanos Serdan Stadium and held an exercise session and light batting practice.

Several coaches said that the installation provides good conditions to prepare for the Classic. On Sunday, the pitchers were also scheduled to take part in the days training.

Regarding the presence of the Cuban team in this stage of their preparation, Mexican manager Vinicio Castilla said that Cuba is definitely the team to beat in the group that also includes Australia, South Africa and Mexico.

"The Cubans are difficult rivals and we can’t be overconfident. Hopefully, we’ll make it to the next round, which is our goal, but it depends on us to make it to San Diego, to face the top two team teams of Group A to play in Tokyo."
