President Obama will take in a baseball game during his historic trip to Cuba later this month.

Major League Baseball said the president will attend an exhibition game March 22 between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team in Havana. His two-day trip is part of efforts to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba after both nations reopened their embassies last year.

The game will be televised on ESPN. It will be the first time a Major League Baseball team has visited Cuba since the Baltimore Orioles played an exhibition game there in 1999.
