Baseball, Cuba

This Month in Photo of the Day: The Stories Behind Your Shots

This photo was taken on February 24, 2013, in Havana, Cuba. Baseball is a staple part of Cuban culture, but most people in the streets of Habana Vieja were playing soccer, handball, chess, or dominos. It wasn’t until five days into the trip that I wandered off of Paseo del Prado and finally found a group of young boys playing baseball. I watched them round the gloves they used for bases and chased after a fleeting ball or two before I started to shoot. Before leaving, I assumed the position of catcher and grabbed this image in the conveniently perfect light. —Lisa Shires
