If Major League Baseball can work out details, including governmental approval, the Rays will be the team that gets to play an exhibition game in Cuba in the spring.
Commissioner Rob Manfred held a drawing Friday among interested teams, and the Rays were chosen. The game likely would be against the Cuban national team, the New York Times reported, and played in Havana.
Manfred said Tuesday that Major League Baseball is working to make the game happen and would be part of an overall MLB effort to improve relations with Cuba.
A Major League Baseball team last played in Cuba in 1999.
