Minnie Minoso New York Cubans Photo from Minoso Estate

Minnie Minoso New York Cubans Photo from Minoso Estate

Contrary to later belief, Orestes "Minnie" Minoso was young once. In 1946, at 24, he broke in with the New York Cubans, who won the Negro National League pennant and Negro League WS. This extraordinary photo from that season shows Minoso on the right alongside a teammate, glove on his left hand, sleeves rolled up. Minoso entered the big leagues with Cleveland in 1949, though he would regularly play with the Cubans in the winter leagues. Photo is NRMT and a real stunner.
