Cuban-born Martin Dihigo is considered by many experts to be the best baseball player in history who never played for the major leagues. He could play every position on the team and sometimes he played several different positions during the same game. Dihigo spent much of his career playing for the New York Cubans and as a pitcher won 256 games for them. He returned to Cuba at the end of his career to be the Minister of Sports in Cuba until his death in 1971.
