An exhibition baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball and the Cuban national team drew dignitaries from both countries to the Estadio Latinoamericano in Havana.
The crowd roared as Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro entered the stadium and walked toward their seats in the VIP section behind home plate.
It was a remarkable sight for Cubans to see the presidents of the United States and Cuba seated side by side.
Obama's wife, Michelle, sat on the other side of him.
It's the first game featuring an MLB team in Cuba since the Baltimore Orioles played here in 1999.
