We remember Conrado “Connie” Marrero (1911-2014)

Conrado “Connie” Marrero was born in Sagua La Grande, Cuba, on this day in 1911.

Marrero was born in my father’s hometown.   I remember my late father telling stories of Marrero talking baseball around town.  He pitched in the majors in the 1950’s with the Washington Senators.

Marrero was  39-40 with a 3.67 ERA & selected to the 1951 AL All Star team.  His record has to be seen in the context that the Senators were a very bad team.  In other words, wonder how many games Marrero would have won with a better team?

He died in 2014.
