4/19/2018, From the management: We have moved the Bullpen over to its new permanent server setup. It's a bit much to explain here, but I think it's working mostly. We have an issue where some requests are blocked due to too many images on a page. I'm working on fixing that issue today. Please let me know on User_talk:Admin if you see any issues. Thank you as always for your support.

Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame

From BR Bullpen

The Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame, in Spanish Salón de la Fama del Beisbol Cubano, is a hall of fame dedicated to Cuban baseball.

The Hall was created in 1936 by the National Director of Sports. The first ten players were elected on July 26, 1939. A commemorative bronze plaque was placed in the lobby of the Parque La Tropical. Elections were held annually until 1961 when professional baseball was outlawed following the Cuban Revolution. The Federacion de Peloteros Profesionales Cubanos en el Exilio (Federation of Cuban Professional Players in Exile) was organized in Miami, FL and continued to elect players from 1962 to 1986 after which elections were suspended.

The elections resumed in 1997 with the addition of 60 members. 20 more members were elected in 1998, but the elections were again suspended in the following year. In 2003 the Cuban Sports Hall of Fame in Florida decided to continue the Hall of Fame. It absorbed all members of the Hall that had been elected from 1939 to 1998 and began electing more members annually but were much less selective.

Cuba does not recognize the members of the Salón de la Fama who were elected after 1961. On June 13, 2005 it was announced that a building to house the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame (1939-1961) would be built in Havana in Palmar del Junco. This was the site of the first game in Cuba took place in 1874.

Cuba reopened the Hall with new inductees starting in 2014, with five players from the period 1874-1961 and five from 1962 onward.
