Synopsis

Examines the tension between players of the Cuban Baseball League who have defected and the government that invested heavily in their training. Includes interviews with local Cuban officials, U.S. sports agents and player/defectors. Baseball in Cuba has served as a powerful symbol of socialist political ideals; however, defections over the past decade by top players to wealthier nations have eroded fan support and diminished the sport's link to Fidel Castro's revolution.
