I remember reading years ago in the Atlantic Monthly (or was it in Harper's?) that Fidel Castro was a pitcher in a Triple-A baseball league before he and his compadres kicked General Batista and his U.S. business partners out of Cuba.
More recently, in an interview with 60 Minutes (or was it on CNN?), Castro used another sport to speak of revolutionary Cuba's relationship with the U.S., which he characterized as less of an ideological struggle than a boxing match.
