Cubaball Tours was created by Bob's brother Kit as a way to travel to The People's Paradise more often. Since 2001 Cubaball has taken groups of Americans and Canadians, many of whom are members of the SABR (The Society of American Baseball Research), on baseball tours all over the island. Itineraries feature games of the Cuban National Series, visits to sites tied to Cuba's rich baseball past, meetings with players past and present, political seminars and cultural events. Cubaballistas have befriended some incredible people along the way including the legendary Conrado Marrero, the late Martin Dihigo Jr, Enrique Diaz (Cuba's Ricky Henderson) and Cuban national team manager, Victor Mesa... not to mention political, diplomatic and cultural icons.
Cubaball tours has been unable to return to Cuba since the pandemic and resulting economic consequences but we are hopeful the situation will improve in the coming year. Email Kit at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure that you are informed about plans. The Cuban season begins in the late summer or early fall.
