1926 Central American Games
From BR Bullpen
The 1926 Central American Games were the first major international competition. Held from October 12 through November 2, the first Central American Games only drew three countries, one of which (Guatemala) did not have a baseball team. The Cuban national team won the first of dozens of events it would enter through the next century. The team was compiled of players from the Police Club, the Havana Yacht Club, the Loma Tennis Club and the University of Havana. The Cubans easily beat the other entry, the Mexican national team, by a composite score of 31-5. Joaquin del Calvo led the tournament with a .714 average.
