Cuban Baseball Hall Of Fame


Bronx, NY – The Cuban Sports Federation (INDER) has organized a committee of 13 members from all realms of Cuban baseball to begin planning a Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame.

It is hard to believe that Cuba with so many stars in baseball from the dynamic Martin Dihigo who played in the 1930’s to some of their most recent stars do not have a Hall of Fame.

After the early period of Cuban revolution when baseball was no longer considered a professional entity the Hall of Fame was no longer an important entity. However, now many in the baseball realm believe that it is time to re-establish a hall to recognize the stars of Cuba’s number one sport.

The committee was recently meeting in the International stadium (also the home of the Industriales baseball team) in Havana to discuss the ongoing details of such an endeavor. Latino Sports was also at the stadium visiting some of our contacts when we were invited to observe some of the proceedings.

One very controversial issue that will have to be discussed is how will they address the issue of the many defectors who have left the island illegally? Perhaps they will have to do something as the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown might have to do with players that were implicated in the steroids is, put an * asterisk next to players name.

Latino Sports is presently in Cuba meeting with sports industry officials reestablishing ties that had been made over ten years ago as part of our new expanded coverage that we will begin in 2015.
