First Place

"Presidio Modelo"

Seen through the back of the visiting dugout at a baseball field in Chacon, Isla de la Juventud, Cuba, a teenage pitcher for a La Isla youth baseball team delivers a pitch in a game against Artemisa. In the background behind the outfield wall are the ruins of the Presido Modelo, the infamous prison where the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and his brother Raul--the current Cuban president--were held from 1953 to 1955.
