Quiz: Cuban-born Marlins players

Players with Cuban roots who succeed in Miami are always appreciated, but a few of these names snuck under the radar.

To help fill the void created by the delayed 2020 regular season, I dusted off the Fish Stripes Sporcle account! Each Saturday, I’ll share an original Marlins quiz with all of you.

Despite the political barriers that slow the flow of baseball talent to and from Cuba, the island has produced an extraordinary catalog of Major League Baseball players, especially over the past few decades. A substantial portion of the Marlins fanbase also has Cuban roots, so when one of their fellow countrymen succeed with this franchise, they are fully appreciated.

You will be able to name several of these Cuban Fish without breaking a sweat. Others admittedly came and went without making much of an impact on the field.

Can you nail all nine players who were born on the beautiful island and played in Marlins regular season games?
