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.
