White House Blocks Deal for Major League Baseball to Sign Cuban Players

Monday, 08 April 2019 03:21 PM

Trump administration on Monday blocked a historic agreement between Major League Baseball and the Cuban Baseball Federation that would have allowed Cuban players to sign with U.S. teams without needing to defect.

The existing deal will not be allowed to go forward because it was based on an erroneous interpretation by the former Obama administration that the Cuban baseball federation was not part of Cuba's communist government, a senior U.S. official said.
