The Baseball Bucket List podcast interviews baseball enthusiasts and insiders on what makes the game so special to them. I recently sat down with host Anna to discuss my journey to and through Cuban baseball culture. We talked about the genesis of CubaDugout and my short film ‘Have Malleta Will Travel’ which was screened at the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2017.

My Short film ‘Have Malleta Will Travel’ was screened at the Cooperstown Hall of Fame in 2017. It resides in the Baseball Hall of Fame archive and chronicles my introduction to Cuban baseball. The title is a play on words with the Last Name Malleta bearing similarity to Maleta the Spanish noun for suitcase. Alexander Malleta would represent a unique bridge in playing for Industriales of Havana and in the Canam League in Ottawa. Join me as I share my unique baseball sojourn.
