The Spanish newspaper El País reports that a new photograph of Fidel Castro, evidently taken earlier this week in Havana, was recently posted on the Dominican Republic government website.

The photograph shows the former President Fidel Castro with President Leonel Fernández of the Dominican Republic.

El País reports that President Fernández noted that Fidel Castro was “lucid” and “up to date” on world events but it has been stated that the majority of their conversation was mostly about baseball rather than politics: Fidel asked about the Dominican baseball team’s lineup for the World Baseball Classic.

The Dominican baseball team includes professional players who come from the major leagues in the United States while the Cuban team consists of only baseball players from Cuba.

El País reports this is the first meeting that Fidel Castro has taken outside of his hospital room. The two leaders met at Fidel Castro’s private residence.

    Bravo Comandante, te deceo lo mejor. Que clase de chasco se han llevado los guzanitos de Miami. Todos sabemos que hay Comandante para rato, es como que te hicistes el muerto para ver el entierro que te iban a hacer, hasta Lage y Perez Roque se estaban poniendo en la fila de los sucesores… solo espero que pronto salgas en publico, tal vez el primero de mayo… por que no?
