• TOP CUBAN PROSPECT DEFECTS

    0

    HAVANA: One of Cuba’s hottest young baseball prospects, power-hitting outfielder Yasmani Tomas, has fled the communist island, state media reported on Friday, in the latest in a string of recent defections. His departure followed news this month that a group of dancers with Cuba’s prestigious national ballet company fled while on tour in Puerto Rico, as did two members of the country’s Davis Cup tennis squad. The whereabouts of Tomas, 23, are unknown, but sources close to his family told Agence France Presse that the athlete was in the Dominican Republic, and that he plans to try to launch a professional baseball career in the US Major Leagues.
