Orioles - Cuba Game

Discussion created by hullstones on Mar 29, 2013

I had the awesome opportunity to see the Baltimore Orioles play the Cuba National team in May, 1999.  During the game a protestor rushed the field and was running around.  It finally took a Cuban umpire to chase the guy down, pick him up, and throw him back onto the ground.  It was really exciting.  It is definitely a game I will never forget.  Unfortunately, the Orioles lost 12-6.  Interestingly, a few weeks prior the Orioles traveled to Havana and played there -- winning that game.  Looking forward to Orioles opening day this year!
