World Classic: Which MLB players could represent Cuba in WBC 2023?

The Government of the United States granted the necessary permission for the Cuban-born baseball players who play in Major League Baseball (MLB) can participate in the World Baseball Classic (WBC). Knowing this news, names have begun to emerge from possible representatives of this Antillean country in the event of 2023.

Cuba has exported an outstanding number of baseball players for the Major Leagues and next year they could be part of this country’s National Team in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) to be held in March.

Among the MLB players who could attend this event are Luis Robert and Yoan Moncada of the Chicago White Sox. In addition, there are other figures such as Yuli and Lourdes Gurriel and José Abreu, veterans who could ‘raise their hands’ to represent the Antillean country.

Cuba’s roster would be made up of major league players who would add those who have experience in other professional baseball leagues around the world. To mention a few, Henry Urrutia (LMB and LIDOM) and Onelki García (LMB and LMP).

The participation of the Cuban National Team in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) was in doubt due to the political situation in the country and that is related to the United States and its laws.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, beginning a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is mainly managed by men. Bachelor of Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball in the Mexican Baseball League (LMB). ), Mexican Pacific League (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Serie del Rey. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was at a Leones de Yucatán game, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team I love and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, at the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
