Throughout 1950s Washington had several Cuban Senators
Bucky Harris (fourth from the left), the Hall of Fame manager for the Washington Senators, with five of his Cuban players during the 1951 season.
This photo was up for auction at Mears Monthly Auctions in April.
The players (from left to right) are Fermin "Mike" Guerra, Conrado "Connie" Marrero, Willy Miranda, Harris, Sandalio "Sandy" Consuegra, and Julio Moreno.
Thanks to scout Joe Cambria, there was a veritable pipeline of baseball talent from Cuba to the Senators in the 1950s.
