Havana, Nov 10 (JIT) The Latin American Stadium wore its best clothes to receive the plaque for the 500th Anniversary of the Villa de San Cristobal de La Habana.
Luis Antonio Torres Iribar, first secretary of the Provincial Committee of the Party; Reinaldo Garcia Zapata, president of the Provincial Assembly of Popular Power; and Osvaldo Vento Montiller, head of the Inder, presided over the simple ceremony at the main entrance of the Colossus of the Hill.
«For Havana, the biggest thing», was the slogan with which Iribar, Zapata and Vento celebrated the emotional moment they witnessed glories of Cuban sport, essentially baseball.
Sports authorities, the Cuban Baseball Federation, and institutions of the capital also attended the unveiling, which was a continuation of a process with dozens of similar acts for several months.
Then, hundreds of fans enjoyed a game between glorious veterans of the Cuban ball, in which popular humorists such as Panfilo, Facundo Correct and Otto Ortiz were inserted.
The legendary Lazaro Valle, Juan Padilla, Rey Vicente Anglada, Antonio Scull, Alexander Malleta, Rodolfo Puentes, Carlos Tabares and other former members of the Industrial and Metropolitan casts once again showed off the beautiful grass of the once Grand Stadium del Cerro.
As a backdrop a stadium with a new roof, impeccable paint, improved grass, great hygiene, the slate-screen in perfect condition and a giant inflatable lion in the central garden area.
Also on Saturday, the fans enjoyed a classic of the Cuban ball between Industriales-Santiago de Cuba, won by the 10-0 santiagueros.
