Alexander Mayeta Kerr (born February 22, 1977 in Playa, Havana, Cuba[1]) is a first baseman with Industriales of the Cuban National Series. He was the play-off most valuable player in the National Series for the 2005–06 season.[2]

Play-off MVP season

Industriales won their 11th title in 2005–06, and Mayeta put up solid numbers for the team, though there were many other players with comparable statistics in the National Series. Mayeta hit a respectable .315, and his 15 home runs and 71 RBIs led the team (tied for 11th and 13th in the league, respectively). However, he was seventh on the team in doubles, and his .555 slugging percentage was far off the league-leading pace set by Michel Enríquez of Isla de la Juventud (.690).


The following is a comparison of Mayeta's numbers with the last two MVP award winners, Yulieski Gourriel and Osmani Urrutia, and two other stars of the league.[3][4] Leaders are shown in bold.
