Kim, it would even be longer if Kastro had not cut the supply of players. In Cuba right now there are players "so called amateurs" that are big league caliber right now.

(did you forget to ask your dad?)

I am going to go thru that list and pointout some anecdotes about some of the playrs.

I thought Robert Estalella was dead. He played with the Senators around world war II and after his baseball career he was working in the washington area as a butcher.

MIGUEL ANGEL GONZALES: Played with the Cardinals; third base coach; unforgettable the world series where he gave the green light to Enos Slaughter to score the winning run. Slaughter scored from first base on a single.

ROBERTO ORTIZ: Also played with the Senators around World War II. He was from a sugar cane area near my hometown. He was discovered when people alerted a scout of a cuban winter league team that he could kill birds in flight with rocks.

MINNIE MINOSO: MET him when he played a short time with the expansion Senators. fearless outfielder, always crashing into walls, which he also did here. Very nice fellow.

CONRADO (CONNIE) MARRERO: MET him in Havana when I was working there briefly waiting for our family visa. He would hold court near where I worked before going to the ballpark on a bus. He was frugal that way. Then when we came to the States in 1954, we reacquainted at the barbershop owned by a cuban fellow. He would ride to Griffith Stadium in the streetcar.

CARLOS (PATATO) PASCUAL: CAMILO'S older brother. had a cup of tea with the Senators but quit in the middle of the season because he was homesick for his girlfriend, who he married.

CARLOS PAULA: MET HIM ALSO WHEN WITH SENATORS. THE REASON HE KEPT BEING SENT DOWN TO TRIPLE A WAS THAT HE HAD A DRINKING PROBLEM AND THEY WOULD NOT PUT UP WITH IT HERE.

JULIO BECQUER: ONE OF THE NICEST PERSONS I HAVE EVR MET. SLICK FIELDING FIRST BASEMAN. TEACHER IN CUBA IN THE OFFSEASON.

ZOILO VERSALLES: SMART ASS PERSON. MY FATHER COULD NOT STAND HIM AND WHEN PASCUAL LIVED IN OUR HOUSE MY FATHER ASKED CAMILO NOT TO INVITE HIM TO VISIT.

PAUL CASANOVA: ANOTHER PRINCE OF A GUY. GRET WITH KIDS AND FANS. CROWD FAVORITE.

PEDRO RAMOS: LADIES MAN. LUCKY PITCHER. WITTY

JOSE VALDIVIELSO: VERY NICE SHY GUY. HAD A DRINKING PROBLEM.

Didn't realize that Danny Tartabull and Jorge Posada were Cubanos. Liked Tartabull a lot, and Posada is fantastic!

  • Hell yes!
Old timers to RFK can still hear the PA announcer's lyrical announcement of "Paul Cas-a-NOV-a".
