Sandy Amoros, ‘El Cubano’ who made the biggest catch in Brooklyn Dodgers history

Edmundo (Isasi) Amoros was born in Havana, Cuba on this day in 1930. He died in Miami in 1992.

He was an extra outfielder in those great Brooklyn teams that played the New York Yankees in 6 World Series between 1947 and 1956. The Yankees and Dodgers were the two best teams in baseball during that period.   

We remember Sandy Amoros for the  the big catch that saved Johnny Podres’ shutout in game 7 of the 1955 World Series.

It was the only World Series victory for the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers.
