“The National Pastime” is a tragedy set in Havana, Cuba in late 2003. Miguel Ángel has been banned from Cuban baseball because his father, César, had in the past denounced him as a rebel against the regime. Yuri is an up and coming pitcher in the Cuban league who trains with Miguel Ángel. The two men become involved with each other, but are discreet because of the intolerance for such love in Cuba. Yuri arranges to escape from the island to Miami with the dream of going into the big leagues and the promise to help Miguel Ángel later join.
