Ultimate "Other" All Time Pitcher

Luis Padron
Left-handed pitcher Luis Padron used his changeup to great effect and was an excellent hitter and a speedy basestealer (once swiping 21 bases in 43 games). Whenever he wasn't pitching, he would play 2nd base, 3rd base, or the outfield. He led the league in hitting in 1902 with a .463 average and averaged 6 home runs a year during the "dead ball" era. "The Mule" compiled a record of at least 39 wins and 25 losses in Cuba from 1900 to 1919, and he also played in the Negro leagues for 18 years. He is considered one of the three best pitchers in Cuban League history and was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 1943.
