Connie Marrero’s “Bridge to Cuba’s Baseball Past”

Major League Baseball may well have forgotten its only surviving centenarian but the New York Times hasn’t. This weekend the Times sports section tells at least a small part of the Marrero story — largely in his own words, culled and translated from my various interviews in Havana (since 1999) with the ageless fifties-era Washington Senators “junkball” legend.

For those of you interested in catching up with the ancient right-hander, the link to the online version of the Times Marrero story is provided here:
