"He is very much a fool," Castro said of Bush. "He doesn't know who the Cuban baseball players are, or that they are Olympic and world champions. If he knew, he would know something about this country's government."
The Cuban president mentioned the ongoing dispute during the second day of regular sessions of the island's National Assembly.
Cuba was scheduled to play first-round games in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and would remain in San Juan if it advances to the second round.
Antonio Munoz, a businessman who agreed to pay millions of dollars to bring the games to Puerto Rico, thinks the Treasury Department will reverse its decision.
"All efforts are being made to get Cuba to come and participate and I think we will succeed," Munoz said.
