Bold and beautiful 1944 photograph of Charles Perez who was a veteran outfielder in the Cuban Winter League (and possibly the Negro Leagues under a different first name). This is a fantastic image that captures life in the Cuban leagues like few we have seen. From the veins bulging on his arms, to the tape on the bat, this image tells a vivid story of pre-integration baseball for minorities!
