1939 Amateur World Series
Cuba won Gold, going 6-0 (one win went 11 innings against Nicaragua) to start a long history of success in the event. Esteban Maciques (.250) led all players in runs (7), G. Toyo (.333) tied for the most hits (9) and Ernesto Estevez (.389) tied for the most doubles (2). Wenceslao Gonzalez (3 for 6) and Bernardo Cuervo (.200) tied for the lead with two triples apiece; Cuervo led with 6 RBI. Pedro "Natilla" Jiménez (2-0, 0.95) led in wins. Future major leaguer Connie Marrero was also on the team. Juan J. Torres was named tourney MVP but it is unclear why as he only hit .174.
