On Tuesday evening, MLB announced that the Rays would be taking on the Cuban National Team in Havana on March 22 -- the first Major League game in Cuba since 1999, and a big step forward in relations between the two countries. And, for such an important occasion, it's only fitting that a VIP guest would be in attendance: President Barack Obama.
The longtime White Sox fan will be making the trip to Cuba for the game, according to a statement released by the White House:
Nice try, Mr. President. We all know you're angling for the Kevin Kiermaier bobblehead.
