Happy # 72 to Tito Fuentes

Tito Fuentes was born in Cuba and signed by the Giants as a free agent in 1962.  We believe that Tito Fuentes was one of the last players to leave Cuba before the doors were shut.    

He broke with the Giants in 1965 at 21.   He was an infielder and enjoyed some good seasons with San Francisco, San Diego and Detroit.    

His numbers were decent:   .268 batting average, 1,491 hits and a .307 on base pct.

Fuentes became a baseball announcer after playing.   He works in the Giants' Spanish network.

This is a great book about baseball and Cuba:
