Former Cuban National All-Star baseball pitcher Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz
has resigned from his public service position, based on a statement read and written by someone else. Ruz, who chose to dedicate his life to a political career instead of continuing focusing on baseball, attended Roman Catholic schools and the University of Havana, where he received law and social science degrees. He has stated: “Power does not interest me, and I will not take it.” He begrudgingly accepted his public service based on the will of the Cuban people. Castro has won every election in his 50-year career.
Many historians admired his ability to provide a high level of health care and education for citizens without the support of the jealous United States.
Cuba will begin elections as soon as possible, with his brother Raul Castro being a popular choice of the people, with Vice President Carlos Lage also being a viable candidate. Ruz is giving a chance for these “young elephants” to help the people as much as he did.
