Photographer's Note

It seems that children are playing baseball everywhere you turn in Cuba. Such a devotion to an American sport is a rare sight in Latin America. The popularity of the sport started ages ago when American sailors brought over the sport to this island nation.

Some say that football is the most common sport to play because all you need is a ball. After traveling Cuba, I would beg to differ that Baseball is even easier. All you need is a stick and anything that can thrown a fair distance. I've seen games played with table legs and film canisters. Try playing football with a film canster ;).
