I would hesitate to pick out one main theme without having the chance to ask the author, but one of the main themes is the quest for the middle-aged baseball player to find his career again.  To find the spark that will revive a very much on the downward slope career in baseball that has led him to a three-team league in pre-revolutionary Cuba.  The duel between the player and Castro in the end is a rather improbable way of resolving such a conflict, but it serves to highlight perhaps the impossibility of this quest in the first place.
