The Zaldo brothers, Charles, Henry, and Frederick from Havana, Cuba, were
all enrolled as students at Fordham University from 1875-1878. During these
three years at Fordham, they too learned and perfected the game of baseball.
Upon returning to Cuba in 1878, the Zaldo brothers founded the Almendares
Baseball Club, one of the three original Cuban baseball teams. In 1878, Habasa,
Almandares, and Matanzas organized themselves professionally to form the "Liga
General de Base Ball de la Isla de Cuba." Below is a photograph of Charles
Zaldo as a student.
