Player Biography
A left-handed power hitter who excelled in his native Cuba and the Negro leagues, Cristobal Torriente starred for the Chicago American Giants from 1918 to 1925, leading the club to three consecutive Negro National League titles (1920-1922). A notorious bad-ball hitter, Torriente also excelled in centerfield, teaming with “Jelly” Gardner and Jimmy Lyons in Chicago to form one of the best defensive outfields in history. Perhaps Torriente’s most notable achievement came in Cuba during the winter of 1920. As a member of the Almendares club, Torriente outplayed Babe Ruth in a nine-game series as Ruth barnstormed during the offseason.
