The Players
Isabel "Lefty" Alvarez
by Mario Longoria
"Lefty" with the Chicago Colleens I sabel "Lefty" Alvarez was the youngest of all the Cuban Latinas to ever play in the AAGPBL and only one of two (the other being Migdalia "Mickey" Perez) to play in the final season of the league in 1954. S he was born on October 31, 1933 in Havana, Cuba to Virtudes Zerdan and Prudencio Alvarez De Leon. Her mother was an inspiration who constantly guided her to move forward. She was also an avid baseball fan of the Almendares Azules (Blues)/Alacranes (Scorpions) baseball team in Havana; who made a late season surge to win Cuba's Baseball Championship in 1947. According to Isabel, she followed them religiously and listened to their games on the radio. Her father served in the Navy and later a policemen for the government of President Fulgencio Batista. The rest of the family was her brother Antonio Alvarez De Leon, who also played baseball but not at the level Isabel had achieved. He still lives in Cuba. W hen Isabel first arrived in the United States, it was a difficult time for her, but she realized her mother's wisdom in time, she says, "my mother's idea for me to come to the U.S., because Cuba was no good for poor people. If you have an education, the rich get rich and the poor get poorer. So my mother figured that baseball was the only way to get out of the country and she worked things out very well".
