Orlando Cepeda (b. 1937)
Also a seven-time all-star, Orlando Cepeda of Puerto Rico led the league in home runs and RBIs in 1961. His professional success, however, did not prevent the managers of the San Francisco Giants from prohibiting the Spanish language in the dugout or a problematic relationship with manager Alvin Dark. When Cepeda had the chance, he moved to St. Louis, where he helped the Cardinals win the World Series in 1968.
