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.

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.
