Tide Baseball Team Scheduled to Play in Cuba

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's baseball team has received permission to play in Cuba in December.

Alabama coach Jim Wells tells The Tuscaloosa News that officials from the university's Alabama-Cuba Initiative originally approached him with the idea in 2003.

It took awhile for the logistics to be arranged.

Teams from the University of Tennessee, the University of Washington and the University of Southern California made the trip in the 1990s.

Wells said he expects to take his entire team on the trip. The tentative schedule calls for three games in mid-December.

It's not clear yet who will make up the opposing team.
