Conrado Marrero - 1951 Bowman

Conrado Eugenio Marrero Ramos (April 25, 1911 – April 23, 2014) Colorful, cigar-smoking Conrado “Connie” Marrero was already a baseball legend in his native Cuba before he made it to the MLB in 1950 at the age of 39. He became an All-Star posting an ERA of 3.90 with 11 wins for the Senators in 1951 and followed that with another 11-win season in 1952. The 5-foot-5, 158-pound Marrero wielded a wicked curveball and slider emanating from a windmill windup that baffled hitters. Known as “El Curveador” in Cuba and “Conrado the Conqueror” in the United States, Marrero’s wild delivery led to more walks than strikeouts in 1951, but he baffled some of baseball’s greats including Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams. A baseball lifer, Marrero continued to pitch and coach in Cuba into his 80s, becoming the ultimate baseball elder statesman. Marrero was the oldest living former Major Leaguer when he died in 2014 at the age of 102.
