Of course, the CONCACAF Gold Cup has a much lower profile than the World Baseball Classic. Another difference could also be that Cuba isn't very good at soccer. The Cubans went 0-3 in the 2005 Gold Cup, losing to the U.S., Costa Rica and Canada. And Cuba didn't get out of the first round of World Cup qualifying. In Cuba's only appearance in the World Cup Finals in 1938, they got bounced out by Sweden in the quarterfinals by a tidy 8-0 score. The Cuban baseball team could actually win a few games.
