    JONQUIÈRE | Two players from the cuban national team junior tour against
    the teams of major League baseball junior élite du Québec, missing since Tuesday.

    These two players have left of their own accord, in the night of Monday
    to Tuesday. On the morning of 11 July, the two players were no more in
    their room.

    According to what we have learned, does anyone know where are the
    baseball players, who have been missing after a game against Buffalo, Saint-Eustache. It is suspected that both players have left their team
    to not return to live in Cuba.

    “No detail “

    The junior national team of Cuba was yesterday at the Stade
    Richard-Desmeules, where she faced the Travelers from Jonquière, in the
    ninth match of this series of 15.

    Met on the premises, the secretary of the road for the tour of cuban and communications director for the major League baseball junior élite du
    Québec (LBJEQ), Antoine Desrosiers, did not want to comment on this
    situation, claiming to have “no detail” on this story.

    The president of the league, Rodger Brulotte, preferred him not to
    comment on the departure of two cuban players. “Our role at the LBJEQ is
    to promote the sport of baseball. We do not interfere in political
    issues “,-he said. Mr. Brulotte was in the hands of the leader of the
    team of Cuba to explain the desertion of the two players.

    Security measures

    Maxim Lamarche, director general of Baseball Quebec, has not returned
    our calls yesterday evening.

    The leaders of the team cuban, however, had already anticipated the
    possibility that a player might want to go without leaving traces, by
    putting in place special measures of surveillance and security.

    For example, it was forbidden to go to the locker room alone. The
    players were accompanied at all times and must abide by clear guidelines
    as to their comings and goings.

    Student residences

    During their stay, the players were accommodated in the student
    residences of the college Ahuntsic.

    The tour of the cuban national team has the goal of promoting the sport
    of baseball throughout the province, and to “continue to weave links
    between Cuba and Canada,” says Antoine Desrosiers. He didn’t want to
    dwell on the impact of these desertions on the links between the two

    This tour is also a way to prepare for the junior team cuba at the world championships.
