MLB wants to have a franchise in Cuba
Rob Manfred, MLB commissioner, said he works to organize matches in Cuba as part of the preparation for next season and have a franchise on the island.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the future president of the majors was in favor of including the land on the island in the upcoming spring season, as part of the approach that is taking place between Cuba and the United States.
He also likes the idea that the majors have a franchise in Cuba, although this would be something for the future, because by now is not economically viable.
However, he said that Cuba is an important source of talent, because since 1961, despite the conflicts between the two countries, the island has provided nearly 100 players, a number that has grown exponentially in recent years.
