Abstract:

Baseball player Minnie Minoso was born on November 29, 1925 in Havana, Cuba. Known as the "Cuban Comet", the outfielder and third baseman played seventeen seasons on four different teams. Minoso was the first Chicago White Sox player to break the color barrier in 1951. He led the American League in stolen bases each year from 1951 to 1953. Following stints with the Cleveland Indians and Washington Senators, the Sox reacquired him in 1960. Minoso retired in 1964, but the Sox brought him out of retirement in 1976 to coach. The club's president named him "Mr. White Sox" before his number "9" was retired in 1983. Minoso was seven-time American League All-Star and three-time Gold Glove outfielder. He was elected to Chicago Sports Hall of Fame in 1984, World Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990 and Shrine of the Eternals in 2002. Minoso passed away on March 1, 2015 at age 89.
