I have seen a photo in a Cuban paper of the Cuban Stars on the docks in Havana, returning from the U.S. It's not very good quality, though, and the players aren't identified, so I am not sure which one is Manela.


this is wonderful - thank you. do you have a photo of him?

Gary Ashwill

Right, thanks. I knew about Agbayani (born in Hawaii), but not about the other guys. I should have just checked Wiki...

According to Wiki, there have been four Filipinos, either by birth, citizenship or heritage... Bobby Balcena (1956 Reds), Benny Agbayani and Chris Aguila.
