Biographical Information[edit]

Father of Robinson Cano, Jose Cano pitched 6 games in the major leagues. He also pitched for years in Mexico as well as in Taiwan. He received more publicity than he ever had as a player throwing to his son in the Home Run Derby at the 2011 All-Star Game at Chase Field on July 11, 2011. Robinson won the crown with a tremendous performance, thanks in large part to Jose's excellent pitching. The close bond between father and son was evident for all to see.

He served as manager of the Dominican Republic Team that played a series of games as part of the Canadian-American Association's schedule in 2017. The team was assembled hastily and was badly overmatched, especially its pitching staff, as many players that Cano wanted to bring along were unable to obtain appropriate visas on time.
