The president of the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC), Riccardo Fraccari, made statements this Friday afternoon to the specialized press at the Latin American stadium, as part of his visit to the country to honor 60 years of the I National Series .

He highlighted the role of the Cuban Baseball Federation (FCB) in the organization of the 61st SNB, and ratified the will of the WBSC to support the development of the discipline in Cuba.

“Above all, we will try to technically promote the sport. We have already dealt with important projects for that push that Cuban baseball needs. In addition, we have verified how the authorities are taking what is programmed for this step very seriously.”

Likewise, he called for attention regarding the non-participation of Cuban baseball in the Tokyo Olympics. “We must reflect and seek solutions in this regard,” he said.

The Italian federation arrived in Cuba yesterday and will be there until the 18th. “I plan to visit facilities in the province of Cienfuegos and visit my dear friend Muñoz,” he said.
