Henry Cruz

On this date in 1952, future Dodger outfielder Henry Cruz was born in Christiansted, Virgin Islands. Cruz grew up in Puerto Rico and made his MLB debut at age 23 with Los Angeles in 1975. He hit his first career home run on 4/25/76, the same day Rick Monday saved the American flag from burning in center field at Dodger Stadium as a member of the Chicago Cubs. Cruz is the director of the Dodgers’ Campo Las Palmas Academy in the Dominican Republic.
