Default 1937 Dominican Season

The 1937 Dominican Season marked one of the greatest collections of baseball talent every assembled. A three team league financed with the best players money could buy. Drawn from the negro leagues and all corners of Latin America the teams featured 4 players who would be enshrined in Cooperstown- Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Cool Papa Bell and Martin Dihigo and nearly a dozen who would be enshrined in the Halls of Mexico, Cuba and Puerto Rico - including Pedro Cepeda, Luis Tiant St, Lazaro Salazar and Alejandro oms. But few realize that the season which was actually a campaign to reelect Rafael Trujillo a ruthless dictator who killed thousands of Haitian in an act that could only be called genocide. Below are a number of items relating to the series. I would love to see other items about the season and it's players. I would also suggest that anyone interested read the recently released The Pitcher and the Dictator by Averal Smith which focus on Trujillo and Paige

Below
1. Post card with Teleto Vargas and Julio Rojo
2. 1935 Cuban stars photo with Horacio Martinez and Fransico Correa
3. Autographed photo of Larzaro Salazar
4. Photo of Tony Catanos
5. 1932 Cuban stars with Candy Lopez

Just looking at the players in Al's photo tell me if you can think of a team that beats them in a 7 game playoff series. Paige makes three starts and Fernandez Griffith and Salazara make the rest. The offense is the strength and scores a bunch of runs

Default Yep....

And it is shocking that they were legit scared that they could lose... of course the other team was stacked with legends like Bragana and Tetelo Vargas... so they were no "easy outs".... Bizarre history this team and sad history of oppression by the US backed dictator, Trujillo.
