I have to admit that I struggle to truly define Cubadugout. It has grown over the past decade. Starting as a collection of photos to now video profiles and unique insight on all things Cuban baseball. This mirrors the grander Cuban baseball sphere in many ways. The amount of content on the subject has exploded in the past few years.
One of the original blogs breaking news and providing fantastic editorial is Pelota Cubana. To this day co-founders Yusseff Diaz and Yordano Carmona are influential in the space. The pair from Miami are leaders in the ex-patriate Cuban community focusing on baseball. They recently focused on my story and my place in the ecosystem.
I recently chatted with Yusseff Diaz about the launch of Pelota Cubana’s first book. It is an anthology of the myriad interviews they have conducted with Cuba’s top baseball players. You can order your copy via Amazon here.
Stay up to date with Pelota Cubana via Twitter. The site is predominantly focused on Spanish coverage but increasingly presents their thoughts in English.
