 Biographical Information
As of 2014, Torres is the last "non-pitcher" to save a major league game, in 1946. He pitched in only five major league games, being mainly an infielder in the majors. It was once common, especially in the 19th century, for position players to be used as relief pitchers, but the practice became increasingly rare and has largely been limited to blowouts and marathon games since the first decades of the 20th century.
Torres is buried in the Cementerio de Regla. He had two daugthers, Teresa and Tamara, and two grandaugthers, Mylene, Cheryl and two grandsons, Ricardo and Roberto.
Remaining in Cuba after the Revolution, Torres managed in the Cuban Serie Nacional and guided the Cuban national team in the 1963 Pan American Games and 1966 Central American and Caribbean Games, both of which times they took home Gold. He led them to a poor 2-3 finish in the 1962 Central American and Caribbean Games. He also did some scouting on the side, signing Adolfo Phillips for the Philadelphia Phillies in 1960.
