Re: Birthdays: 6/30
Rafael Almeida was a Red from 1911 to 1913. Depending on how you feel about the National Association being a major league, he may have been the first Cuban to play in the majors.
Almeida had a habit of doffing his cap and bowing to the pitcher and the fans before he stepped into the batter's box. I really wish that would come back into fashion...
