Players in major league history

  • Adolfo Luque (1890 - 1957)

    Known for his cantankerous personality and his curveball, Adolfo “Dolf” Luque played in the major leagues from 1914 - 1935, notably 12 seasons with the Cincinnati Reds before finishing his career with the New York Giants, during a time when many Cubans with darker skin were relegated to the Negro leagues. After he retired from the pitching mound with a 194-179 record, Luque coached the New York Giants for seven seasons. He entered the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame in 1967. — Photo by: AP
