Adrián Zabala was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the New York Giants ( 1945 , 1949 ). Zabala was born in Cuba , won a gold medal at the 1935 Central American and Caribbean Games, played professionally with the Panama City Pelicans, and was signed to a minor league contract in 1942. He returned home to serve in the Army (1943-1944), resumed playing in Jersey City in 1945, and was promoted to the majors later that same year!

Did you know that Adrian Zabala was one of thirteen ballplayers suspended for five years, on May 9, 1946, for playing in the Mexican League? The news wire reported:

13 Ex Major Leaguers Suspended for 5 Years

May 9. Baseball Commissioner A.B. Chandler today listed 13 ex-major league players as "ineligible" for five years.

His office said the players named "jumped" to the Mexican League. The Commissioner said several weeks ago that players deserting organized ball for the South-of-the-border circuit would be "out" and could not apply for reinstatement for five years.

Murray Franklin , late of Detroit, was the only former American Leaguer listed.

Named from the National League were Arnold (Mickey) Owen . Luis Olmo and Roland Gladu , formerly of Brooklyn; Rene Monteagudo , Philadelphia, and George Hausman, Roy Zimmerman , Napoleon Reyes , Harry Feldman , Salvatore A. Maglie , Adrian Zabala, Daniella Gardella and Ace Adams , who played with New York.

On July 31, 1949 , Adrian Zabala, in his first major league game since being suspended, pitched a complete game shutout! The crafty lefty had his ups & downs for the remainder of the season, then spent the next seven years playing in the minors. After coaching the Jacksonville Braves, he spent the next twenty years working for the St. Regis Paper Mill, in Jacksonville, Florida.
