Lot 75. Hi (Hiram) Bithorn Autographed Photo from Inside the Front Cover of “Baseball Magazine. Drafted by the Chicago Cubs in Sept. 1941, Bithorn became the first MLB player from Puerto Rico when he made his debut for the team on April 15, 1942. A pitcher, he posted a 34-31 record in three full seasons and a two-game season. He missed two seasons while serving in World War II. In 1943, he won 18 games, including seven shutouts, lost 12 and finished the seasons with a 2.60 ERA. In 1951, Bithorn was killed in Mexico by a police officer that subsequently was sentenced to eight years in prison for murdering the former Cubs player. In 1962, a new stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico, was named Hiram Bithorn Stadium in honor of the pitcher. His autograph is nm 7 to nm-m 8 on the b&w ex-m magazine photo. PSA/DNA Pre-Certified.
