                  Cuban infielder Ramon “Mike” Herrera. A light skinned Cuban, Herrera was given a shot in organized baseball and he played parts of a couple seasons with the Boston Red Sox in the mid-1920’s. He is one of a handful of players to have played in the Cuban League, Negro Leagues and Major Leagues. 1924

                      long-time Negro Leaguer Frank Duncan. One of the greatest catchers in the history of the Negro Leagues. His career spanned from 1920 to 1948. Was a key member of the K.C. Monarchs dynasty of the early 1920’s and later managed them to a Championship in 1942.
                      Hit .336 as the starting catcher for the greatest team in the history of Cuba, the 1923-24 Santa Clara Leopardos.

                        American Ed Morris as a member of the Marianao team.

                        Morris was an unproven commodity as a Big League pitcher at the time, but would go on to win 19 games for the 1928 Boston Red Sox,- 1925
