While the top contenders in the WBC (USA, Japan, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico) are loaded with major leaguers who will be taking out time from spring training, Cuba is stopping its own season and undertaking intense preparations for the tournament according to this report from

Security at the stadiums will be as tight as "a bank vault," said sports trainer Alexis Martin, with the goal of keeping the players focused and strategy a secret.

Guards will be stationed at all entrances, forbidding anyone but baseball's chosen to get through the doors. In addition, cars won't be permitted to park outside the stadiums nor fans allowed in the surrounding area.

Those crafty Cubans! They've got knowledge of the hit and run! Time to get on the hotline to defuse the international crisis!
