The Veracruz Rojos del Aguila are spending a month’s worth of training camp in Cuba. Aguilas president Jose Antonio Mansur says he was pleased with negotiations that took place between Cuban officials and Veracruz state governor Fidel Herrera, who he said has always had good relations with leaders of the island nation.

The Aguilas began training in Cuba on February 22 and are scheduled to remain there until returning home next month to play a preseason game with the Yucatan Leones on March 9. Veracruz will play exhibition games against Cuban teams prior to returning to Mexico.

Veracruz will play their 2010 Mexican League schedule under manager Victor Mesa (pictured), himself a native of Cuba.
