The New York Cubans were a Negro league baseball team that played during the 1930s and from 1939 to 1950. Despite playing in the Negro leagues, the team occasionally employed white-skinned Hispanic baseball players as well, because Hispanics in general were largely ignored by the major league baseball teams before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball.

With a team that included such notables as Luis Tiant, Sr., Minnie Miñoso and Martín Dihigo, the New York Cubans won their only Negro League World Series title in 1947, defeating the Cleveland Buckeyes.

Partial proceeds from the sale of this commemorative beer bat go to the Negro League Baseball Museum to support their mission of preserving and celebrating the rich history of African-American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America.
