Canadian officials will arrive in Cuba to evaluate the participation of a Cuban baseball team in the independent Can-Am League and the possible Cuban ballplayers hiring.

The Can-Am league delegation is headed by its Vice President and owner of Quebec Capitals baseball team, Michel Laplante, who will meet tomorrow and on Thursday with some directors of the National Baseball Department and National Institute of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation (INDER).

At the meeting, Cuban baseball team's second-year participation in the Can-Am baseball league, which is played in several Canadian and US cities, will be debated.

Likewise, the issue on hiring Cuban ballplayers will be also dealt with due to the interest of some Can-Am teams, as happened in previous edition.

On the other hand, among the newest issues they highlighted the invitation of an Under-18 baseball team to a youth championship, based in Quebec.

Both parties will hold a press conference on Friday at Adolfo Luque Hall of the Latinoamericano Ballpark.

In previous season, in addition to the Cuban baseball team which had 11 wins and nine losses, a great deal of Cuban ballplayers were hired and included in different Canadian baseball teams´ lineup.

For this season, Can-Am Baseball League is scheduled to begin from May 18 to September 17, with the participation of some other international baseball teams.
