The Cuban baseball team that will attend the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia, continues today its preparation to receive the United States squad next week.
The traditional baseball match between both sides will be held this year at Havana´s Latinoamericano Stadium between next July 10 to 14 and will serve as a final training for the local squad, which will depart to Colombian soil a day later.
The Cuban team returned to the Caribbean island by the end of last month after holding two training series against Venezuela and Colombia.
This type of bilateral matches between Cuba and USA were resumed in a second stage in 2012, after starting in the 1990s, and so far in the new period the balance favors the latter 16 - 14.
The US team has won the last three editions of the match, two of them as hosts, by three wins to two.

Currently, they are on their way to their traditional Japan tour, where they will hold five more games before traveling to Havana on July 8, according to USA Baseball website.
