unnamed

“During Havana, Cuba’s 15th International Ernest Hemingway Colloquium I met with Oscar “Cayuco” (the Homerun Kid) Blas, last surviving member of the original “Estrellas de Gigi“.
Established in the 1940s to provide an activity for Ernest Hemingway’s sons, when they visited their Cuban family home, La Finca Vigía, the “Estrellas de Gigi” (Gigi Stars) was named for Hemingway’s youngest son, Gregory, who was nicknamed Gigi.”
