Retired baseball star Cano Vega is murdered on a Spanish Harlem community baseball field he sponsored, with his skull smashed with a bat. He had borrowed $200,000 from a loan shark and his wife believed him adulterous. Yet, she and agent Bobby Fox point at Alfredo Quintana, editor of a Cuban diaspora magazine, which called him a traitor after a visit to Castro's Cuba, which he was a refugee from. He was beaten by a team mate before the murder but there's more to the Cuban connection.

As a baseball fan, Beckett is thrilled about getting to meet Joe Torre
. Though he was the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers when the episode was shooting, Torre is most famous for managing the New York Yankees from 1996 to 2007. During those eleven years, the Yankees compiled a .605 winning percentage, made the playoffs every year, won four World Series titles, six American League pennants, and ten American League East division titles; Torre himself won AL Manager of the Year in 1996 and 1998.

Cuba does not have a consulate in New York City, or an embassy in Washington, D.C. Instead, Cuba has an interests section in Washington, D.C. and a mission to the United Nations in New York City. Detective Beckett is correct when she states that the head of the "Cuban Consulate" does not have diplomatic immunity, but more limited consular immunity. However, the head of a mission to the United Nations would have full diplomatic immunity. See more
