90 Miles

One of the storylines in our novel involves the smuggling of Cuban baseball players. Our book is fiction, but part of the story is inspired by the case of Gus Dominguez. Gus is in jail right now. He was an agent for Cuban players like Yuniesky Betancourt. He was accused, and convicted, of smuggling, transporting and harboring Cuban players.

It's a long, complicated story, and I'll let you do the research on your own, but whether you are for or against what he did, I think we can all agree that this story has been swept under the rug by Major League Baseball.
