Don’t know if anyone noticed this article in today’s Toronto Star about baseball in Cuba (plus a few other items in the visit)
It makes for an interesting read.
Here are a few photos from a February game when our local team, Cueto, was playing in the Provincial series. I don’t worry about schedules as we live a few blocks from the stadium and just walk over when I hear the roar of the crowd. Admission is free and you are allowed to drink at the games.
Nice to hear that. The article indicated that you couldn’t drink at the games and that surprised me.
Wonderful pics Bob and I enjoyed the article as well. Thank you!
There is “technically” no drinking at Serie Nacional games at the large stadiums. Alcohol is not sold but certainly many do bring it in and it’s basically tolerated as long as people are behaving themselves. I would imagine that things are pretty relaxed when the local team is playing in a town like Cueto.
The number of regulations that people in small towns, especially in the Oriente, that everyone, including authorities, say “made in Havana but just don’t work here” so are totally ignores blows my mind
I have heard that some Nacional league stadiums do sell beer in the tourist seat zone. I have never experienced those seats yet. Juice box ron flatten out to fit the pocket and are popular in the cheap seats.
