Video: Habana vs. Cienfuegos, circa 1940s

Béisbol. from Memoria de Cuba on Vimeo.

Newsreel footage of a Cuban League game between Habana and Cienfuegos at Estadio La Tropical that appears to be some time between 1943-46 because at 1:22 Cuban great Adolfo Luque (wearing No. 32) is clearly visible coaching third base while wearing a Cienfuegos uniform. According to Jorge S. Figueredo's Who's Who In Cuban Baseball, 1878-1961, Luque managed Cienfuegos during the 1943-44, '44-45 and '45-46 seasons, leading the Elefantes to the 1945-46 pennant.
