A Tribute to Cuban Baseball
A great number of Cubans played on baseball Teams in the Professional and Amateur Leagues in Cuba. Cubans have played in about all the baseball playing nations. In the United States, Cubans played proudly and with distinction in the Major Leagues, Minor Leagues, and Negro Leagues.  Ballplayers like Esteban Bellán, José Méndez, Martín Dihigo, Adolfo Luque, Minnie Miñoso, and Tony Pérez had stellar careers in baseball. Several Cubans are listed among the greatest players in baseball History.  Many of the greatest American ballplayers played in Cuba. Americans like Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Josh Gibson, and Satchel Paige have graced the ballfields of the island nation. Many appeared on Cuban Baseball Card sets and Collectibles.  This site is dedicated to all the ballplayers of Cuban Heritage and all ballplayers who have played in Cuba.
