Ultimate "Other" All Time Team

Tetelo Vargas
Tetelo Vargas
The "Dominican Deer" is considered the Domincan Republic's greatest ballplayer. An outstanding all-around player, Vargas had great speed for base stealing and fielding, an excellent throwing arm, and a consistent .300 hitter with great bat control. Most of his professional career in the Dominican Republic was with obscure teams that kept no statistics, but he was still active when the more organized Dominican Summer League began in 1951 and captured the batting title in 1953 with a batting average of .355 at the age of 47. Vargas also played baseball in Puerto Rico, the Negro Leagues, and Mexico. His Negro League career spanned 18 years from 1927 to 1944 and he hit .479 for the New York Cubans in 1943. He is a member of both the Sports Hall of Fame in the Dominican Republic and the Professional Baseball Hall of Fame in Puerto Rico.
