Lourdes Gurriel Sr. was a star player in Cuba from the late 1970s through the early 1990s. He wasn’t allowed to play in the major leagues in the USA due to political restrictions by his country.
His sons, Yuliesky and Lourdes Jr., got the opportunity he didn’t have, and they are now playing in the big leagues. Yuli will be starting his fourth season with the Houston Astros, while Lourdes Jr. will begin his second season with the Toronto Blue Jays.
