Saskatoon Star-Phoenix, October 27, 1961:
Joe Cambria, a baseball scout who has signed more than 500 youngsters to professional contracts, wishes he had latched on to just one more.
Fidel Castro, a right-handed pitcher who since has been accused of left-handed political leanings, was rejected by Cambria in the mid-1940s.
“Castro had a good curve ball, but not much of a fast ball” Cambria told Bill Tanton of the Baltimore Evening Sun.
In retrospect, as a fringy right-handed soft tosser, Castro probably would have been back in Cuba by 1952 anyway. Not everybody can be Bob Tewksbury.
