Rays Triple Play: Historic Cuba trip may be announced soon

The announcement about the Rays’ March trip to Cuba is expected to be made this week, perhaps as early as today.

The O’s won the first game, played March 28 at Estadio Latinoamericano, 3-2 in 11 innings. The teams met again May 3 in Baltimore with Cuba winning 12-6.

It was the first time the Cuban national team played a team of major leaguers since 1959.
