Cuba - U.S. Baseball

NPR's Tom Gjelten reports on tonight's baseball game in Baltimore between the Orioles and the Cuban all-star team. The Cubans are hoping to avenge their 3-2 loss in Havana in March...and their chances might have improved. Several of the best Cuban players didn't play in the last game, but they are with the team for this game. The Cuban government is worried about defections, but for the most part the U.S and Cuban governments are trying to stay out of the way.
