Historical Context:
"Before game one Cuban officials made GVSU players and coaches feel welcome by their visit to our dugout and giving us a small replica of the Cuban flag (see display). Later players and coaches from both teams were introduced and took their places along their respective foul lines. The flying of our colors and playing of the national anthems gave this event an Olympic feel. For Cuban officials the event was an opportunity to demonstrate their county's baseball prowess against the U.S. (not just GVSU), as the scoreboard team names read: Cuba vs USA." -Gordon Alderink
