The flight from Havana to Miami takes a mere 80 minutes, and for many Cubans, the promise of starting a new life in the US is too great to ignore. That's even more true for elite baseball players like Cesar Prieto who could make a fortune if he makes it to the big leagues.

SI senior writer Greg Bishop introduces the unforgettable Jo Hastings and Billy Henderson and reveals what a defection sounds like as it happens.
