Clash between Cuban players and anti-Castro protestorsEdit
At a baseball game in between Cuba and the Netherlands Antilles the day after the opening ceremony, anti-Castro protestors taunted the Cuban players, threw flyers at them, and mocked with them offers of cash. A fight broke out but only one bystander was injured and hospitalized after Indianapolis police broke up the fight by preventing the Cuban players from entering the stands. At a subsequent game against Puerto Rico, some Cuban players were able to enter the stands to chase protestors before being stopped.
