Baseball’s Team USA Beats Cuba, Seen As Symbolic Victory For Democracy

  • Team USA scored a knockout victory over Cuba’s national baseball team Sunday evening after the stars and stripes scored 14 runs over its communist rival, which was kept at bay with only two runs throughout the game.
  • The American 14-2 victory marked a definitive moment both for world sports and the Cuban exile community as the win sends the USA to face the winner of Monday night’s Japan vs. Mexico game, and also handed Miami’s Cuban community a decades long awaited victory.
