Washington, March 17 (PL) - The Cuban baseball team receives love and support, included in the semifinals of the World Classic, in a large luminous sign on a downtown building in the heart of New York City.
Hasta el final con Cuba! followed by the tags #Team Asere and #World Baseball Classic, is the text that can be read on the screen on the New York building, according to a video posted on social networks by the U.S. movement The People's Forum, one of the promoters of the initiative.
The West Indian team, baptized as "Team Asere" and for the first time with players from the Major Leagues, defeated Australia (4-3) in a great game at the Tokyo Dome stadium in the Japanese capital, thus earning a ticket to LoanDepot Park in Miami, where the semifinals of the World Classic will be played on Sunday and Monday, and the title will be disputed on Tuesday 21.
The team coached by Armando Johnson is already in the United States and is once again among the top four after winning the subtitle in 2006 after losing to Japan.
Team Asere's next game in the Classic will be next Sunday and they will face the winner of the match between Venezuela, undefeated leader of Group D, and the United States, reigning champion and host of the finals.
