Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame

The few, the elite, the enshrined members of the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame - which was once located in Miami, Florida, but no longer exists in a formal building due to the ever present political tension between the two countries.

Listed below in yearly induction order is the complete membership to the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame. Members are selected by a committee and they are placed in order by their year of induction and rank on the final ballot.

Year Name(s) of Inductees

Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame



Did you know that political tension between Cuba and the United States of American caused the last eleven year delay between inductions?

In 1951 Martín Dihigo was inducted into the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame thus becoming the first player to appear in both halls of fame (National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown).

There were nearly five-thousand people in appearance at a Miami hotel in 1997 for the most recent Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
