The Cuban Baseball Federation (FCB by its Spanish acronym) has stressed the legitimacy of the payment of a rate of release for each Cuban player hired by clubs of the Major League Baseball (MLB).
The information appeared in a couple of tweets issued last night by FCB which were written in English in order to reach US users primarily.
"The fee paid by #MLB to #FCB will be used for the promotion and development of amateur baseball in #Cuba, including local children and youth leagues," said the first tweet.
Then, it was published a second note saying: "The #MLB teams will pay a" release fee "to #FCB that will not be reduced from the player's contract with #MLB franchises. Anyone who says otherwise is #FalseNews».
The FCB tweets appear at a time when the administration of Donald Trump could be reviewing the relevance of the agreement signed with MLB last December 19th, through which it is planned to order the presence of Cuban ballplayers in MLB.
Shortly after giving birth to the historic agreement, Senator Marco Rubio and some other American media, the most conservative one, raised their voices against the document, citing supposed financial benefits for the Cuban government.
The Cuban baseball authorities and MLB have insisted that the agreement is a firm step to end trafficking of players whose lives have been put in danger on many occasions.
