The game that Cubans saw this past Sunday night was a replay of the May 2 game between the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves. The game was reportedly stripped of commercials and was injected with color by Cuban commentators – though the original English commentary could be heard a bit in the background.

It remains clear whether Cuba received permission from the MLB to broadcast this game. Professional sports were banned in the communist nation after it was viewed as inconsistent with Marxist ideals.
