Andres Macu, League Title - 15

The Gulf Coast League Dodgers took the 1990 league title over West Palm Beach and the Expos and one of the players that helped them there was Andres Macu.

The Dodgers took the best-of-three series 2 games to 0. Macu helped get them there with a .274 average during the regular season.

Macu, though, couldn't help another team to a league title. He played just that single season as a pro. He never made it out of rookie ball.

Macu's career began in 1988, signed by the Dodgers as a free agent out of his native Puerto Rico. He played there at Liceo Puerto Rico High.

He started with the Dodgers in the Dominican Republic. He played in 1988 and 1989 for Santo Domingo. He hit .244 over 33 games there in 1988. He then hit .331 over 46 games there in 1989. He also stole 14 bases that year.

Maco moved stateside to the rookie Gulf Coast League at Kissimmee for 1990. He picked up 32 hits in 117 at bats, along with a double, a triple and two home runs. He also stole four bases and knocked in 16. Those stats marked the extent of his minor league career.
