Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame

The following is a list of the players, managers, league officials, umpires and media members who have been elected to the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame, both in Cuba (from 1939 to 1961) and in Miami, Fla., (beginning in 1962).

After professional baseball ended in Cuba in 1961, players who had migrated to the United States, formed the Federación de Peloteros Profesionales Cubanos en el Exilio (Federation of Professional Cuban Baseball Players in Exile), which continued to elect members to the Hall of Fame in votes conducted in Miami from 1962-1986, 1997-1998, and in 2007.
