Broadcasters – Tito Fuentes
Tito Fuentes returns to the Giants’ Spanish language broadcast booth for his ninth straight season. Fuentes previously served as a member of the Spanish language broadcast team from 1981-92, and in 1996-2004 he broadcast for FOX Sports International which is aired in Latin America. An active participant in the Giants’ marketing efforts, he is a regular participant in the Giants Fantasy Camp and Giants Cruise. A former Major League second baseman who played for the Giants from 1965-74, Fuentes saw big league action with San Diego, Detroit and Oakland. The Havana, Cuba native was initially signed as an 18-year-old amateur before the start of the 1962 sea- son and was the last baseball player signed directly out of Cuba before the United States embargo against Cuba. A .268 hitter over his 13-year career, he was voted the starting second baseman on the Dream Team for the Giants 25th Anniversary team by San Francisco fans in 1982. In 1997, “23” was inducted into the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame. He and his wife, Maritza, reside in Reno, Nevada.
