Alfredo Consuegra y Anchia

Alfredo Consuegra was a member of the first two Cuban national teams, as was his brother Jorge Consuegra, making them the first brothers to play for Cuba on the international stage. In the 1926 Central American Games, he backed up Antonio Castro at catcher. Starting game 2 against Mexico, he was 1 for 2 with a run and had one putout and only one assist in a win. Cuba got the Gold. He was very good as a part-timer in the 1930 Central American Games as Cuba again won Gold - he went 4 for 8 with a double, steal and 3 runs. He split catching with Francisco Espinera and tied him as the top-fielding catcher (he had 11 PO, 4 A and 0 E while Espinera had 12, 3 and 0). Had he qualified, he would have tied Manuel Chávez and Francisco Torrijos for the best average in the event.
