This download is a reading activity for first-year Spanish students that was originally designed as a reading comprehension assessment, but you could certainly use it in class as a cultural reading that is not assessed. The first reading is about sports in Spanish-speaking countries, and it has accompanying questions. The second reading is specifically about baseball in the Dominican Republic, and it was designed to be a re-take assessment, but again could be used as an additional cultural reading.
