Baseball manager suspended over comments

7:18 am on 12 April 2012

The Miami Marlins baseball team has suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five games after he praised Cuba's Fidel Castro in a magazine interview.

The outspoken Guillen held a bilingual news conference overnight in Miami - home to a large Cuban exile community - to apologize for a second time and said there were translation problems with the interview.
