Everyone Should Know About These Latino MLB Legends

One of his managers with the Giants once described his pitching ability as, “just put us ahead one run late in the game, and he’s the greatest pitcher ever”. Native of the Dominican Republic, he signed with the Giants in summer of 1960 and immediately showed the world what he was made of, throwing a complete shutout game in his debut. Rivals always commended him for his laser-like accuracy and uncanny ability to conceal his pitch until it was well on its way – normally to the strike zone before batters could figure him out. He only played in one World Series game and was sometimes overshadowed by the great pitchers of the 60s. Nonetheless, he was inducted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1983. Well done, young man!
