Oscar Levis

Oscar Levis was one of the best Jamaican players ever. Only Justin Masterson has won more games in the majors by a Jamaican, through 2022; Levis was 38-35 in the big leagues. Levis was noted for his spitball and "fake spitter". His skin color and spitball both kept him out of the white major leagues as he spent his career in the Negro Leagues and the Cuban Winter League. He was involved in three notable games in Cuba - one of the best pitching duels in league history, a no-hitter and a contest in which a future Hall-of-Famer hit three inside-the-park homers. The first player born in Jamaica, this fact was not recorded for many years, due to mistaken information on his birthplace as well as the Negro Leagues being classified as major leagues decades after his passing.
