In case you missed it, the Tampa Bay Rays played an exhibition game against Cuba national team in Cuba today. Following the game, ESPN video caught a broadcast by Bob Ley interrupted by Cuban protester who was then grabbed by Cuban authorities, dragged away, and thrown in the back of the car.

There’s a lot happening on a political level between the United States and Cuba. From the start, I had some feelings that despite the gaining of ground in the relationship between the two countries, it may have been a little soon to schedule a baseball game with President Obama in attendance. Things are not well in Cuba, and this video shows a bit of that.

He’s not speaking English, so I don’t know what he said, but I’m sure it wasn’t pretty. Video also caught the protester being pulled down by Cuban authorities, dragged away, and thrown in the back of a marked car that sped away as soon as the door shut.

The video shows a Cuban protester jump in the screen while Bob Ley was live.
