      The Cuban Game

      2002 1h 33m Documentary List
      Reviews Through newsreel footage and interviews, this documentary chronicles the origins of the American pastime -- baseball -- in Cuba. Although the game came to Cuba in the late 19th century and was viewed as a symbol of anti-Spanish oppression, the sport took on a new political urgency after the 1959 revolution, when Fidel Castro embraced it and tried to beat the Americans at their own game. The film also focuses on the Cuban All-Star team that played the Baltimore Orioles in 1999. Read More Read Less
