MIAMI (AP) — It's game on once again for an historic matchup between old Cuban baseball teammates abruptly canceled earlier this summer.
Organizers with the Somos Cuba Entertainment Group say the Industriales will play at the Fort Lauderdale Stadium August 31.
Retired players from the team arrived in Miami one week ago to play against former teammates who had gone into exile.
They were originally scheduled to play at Florida International University, but school administrators canceled the game less than a week after tickets went on sale.
An FIU spokeswoman said the game was canceled due to a "contractual matter." However, the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida said it had "troubling evidence" the game was canceled because of fears of a hostile reaction.
The Industriales will play in Tampa Friday and Saturday.
