History: As tensions mounted between the United States and Fidel Castro’s revolutionary government, the International League stepped in and transferred the Havana Sugar Kings franchise to Jersey City in mid-season. The newly-christened Jerseys barely had time to create new uniforms and caps. In fact, the word “Jersey City” was hastily sewn over the previous Sugar Kings lettering.
