Baseball may be America's game, but passion for the sport could be strongest in Cuba.
"The Cuban kids will play baseball anywhere," photographer David Alan Harvey said. "But I never saw a game where the kids all had gloves or bats. They'll use a stick for a bat, and make a ball from a roll of gaffer tape. They create a diamond out of whatever space they have and might use only one base."
The passion is shared by old and young and by fans as well as players.
"Cubans are just fanatical about baseball, and every evening men gather to talk about it," the photographer said. "The first time I saw them talking baseball, I thought a fight was going onand there they were debating something that Mickey Mantle did in 1953."
