Cuban Baseball Players Ruled Out Of National Team For Defecting

Six Cuban baseball players are ruled out of the national squad for trying to defect.

A Government news website says they were implicated in ``attempts to leave the country illegally.'' 

It did not give details or say if any succeeded. 

The players will not figure in the squad selected to face a U.S. collegian team next month in Cuba.
