|Martin Dihigo in 1937 action, playing for Marinao, in the Cuban league.|
Interesting footnote: It is reported that Dihigo became somewhat bitter after the color barrier broke and blacks entered the major leagues. He was a baseball announcer in Cuba and reports are he was extremely bitter and critical of play of the younger generation. Engaged in opposition politics to Cuba’s dictator, Fulgencio Batista, he disappeared from the scene and departed his native land, only to return after Fidel Castro gained power. Castro named him his Minister of Sports shortly after obtaining power.
