Fidel Castro hits the Ball

The Great Revolutionary*/Dictator* was a keen baseball player and supporter of the game in Cuba. 

A long-standing myth in America is that Castro tried out for either the New York Yankees or Washington Senators and failed to impress enough to sign a contract; while a fan of baseball, Castro was not a good enough player to warrant such a try-out and there is no record of his having played professionally.
Nice to see he kept his boina on while playing though...
