The United States cancels an agreement allowing Cuban baseball players to sig
Donald Trump’s kick to diplomatic relations with Cuba fell this Monday in baseball. The White House decided on Monday to stop an agreement between the Professional Baseball League of the United States (MLB) and the Cuban Baseball Federation Whereby American teams could sign Cuban players. The deal, described in its historic day, had been initiated by the Obama administration and after three years of negotiation had been approved last December.
Several of the biggest baseball stars in the United States, such as Yasiel Puig, Yoenis Céspedes or José Dariel Abreu, are Cubans who fled Cuba. With diplomatic relations broken until 2015, desertion was the only way they could play in the world’s most prestigious league. One of the consequences of President Barack Obama’s diplomatic approach to Cuba was to seek a formula to give legal channels to the interest of American teams in Cuban stars.
In a radical change of approach, the Treasury Department has decided that the Baseball Federation is part of the Cuban government, and therefore it is illegal to do business with it, Reuters explains an anonymous charge from that department. According to the agreement, players can be booked directly from Cuba, without passing through a third country, in exchange for a commission for the Cuban Federation. Cuba has a similar agreement with the Japanese league.
