MLB Association, Cuba Host Baseball Clinic for Young Kids

Havana, November 18 (RHC/Xinhua)-- Cuba and the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) on Friday hosted a clinic for young Cuban baseball players to teach them new skills and share knowledge of the global game.

Led by former MLB pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, the clinic was hosted by the Cuban Baseball Federation and various local stars.

"It's a great opportunity to be here in Cuba representing Major League Baseball and continuing to build relations. We have baseball in common as it has become a global sport and to be able to share experiences with the kids is unique," Guthrie told the media in  Havana.

The goodwill tour, organized for the first time by the MLBPAA, seeks to expand ties with Cuba in order to host other similar events in the future.

Over 100 kids from different baseball teams in Havana took part in the clinic where they learned new skills at different positions and got to share experiences with MLB figures.
