Obama to visit Cuba Sunday, first president to do so in nearly 90 years

HAVANA, CUBA (FOX 32 News) On Sunday, President Barack Obama will become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Cuba in nearly 90 years.

He is scheduled to meet with Cuban President Raul Castro on Monday to discuss regulatory changes the U.S. has taken.

Then on Tuesday, the president will address the Cuban people. Later that day, he'll attend the Tampa Bay Rays game against the Cuban national team.  It's the first time a major league baseball team has visited the island in nearly two decades.
      
The thawing of U.S.-Cuban relations also brings some satisfaction to rock fans. The Rolling Stones will perform at a free concert in Havana on Friday, the first-ever open-air concert in Cuba by a British rock band.

The president will be joined by the First Lady and their two daughters.
