Duke of Havana: Baseball, Cuba, & the Search for the American Dream
Steve Fainaru (au); Ray Sanchez (au). In 1998, a mysterious right-handed pitcher helped lead the N.Y. Yankees to a World Championship. Named Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez, he was a fallen hero of Fidel Castro’s socialist revolution. Once hailed as a paragon of Castro’s revolution, the finest pitcher in modern Cuban history was banned from baseball for life for allegedly plotting to defect. But he fearlessly fought back, defying the Communist party authorities, vowing to pitch again, & ultimately fleeing his country in a 30-foot fishing boat. Here are the secrets behind El Duque’s persecution & escape. A true story of cloak-&-dagger adventure, secret plots, & the pull of big money. Photos.
