    Martin Dihigo was one of the greatest offensive players in the Negro Leagues. He would be found among the home run and batting leaders and was also considered one of the elite pitchers. His career in the Negro, Cuban and Mexican leagues was exceptional.

    Dihigo was also quite accomplished defensively playing virtually all positions including catcher. He is in the HOF in both the United States and Mexico.
