Sponichi reports that Cuba announced their list of 31 potential candidates for the World University Baseball Championships (7/30 - 8/7).  I managed to track down the actual list at Prensa Latina for those interested.  I also took the liberty of placing asterisks next to players that were also on the 2009 WBC roster for Cuba.
