Here is something on the teams in the League. LatinoBall: Inter-American League of 1979 Miami was in first place. It seemed like a good idea considering we didnt have a Summer team in Florida at the time..
Miami Amigos (U.S.)
Caracas Metropolitanos (Venezuela)
Maracaibo Petroleros de Zulia (Venezuela)
Santo Domingo Azucareros (Dominican Republic)
Puerto Rico Boricuas

It was an experience playing for Panama. Interesting Inter-American League Items | SABR
These men knew that they were unique players in a unique league that ended too soon for them.
When a Dream Plays Reality in Baseball: Roberto Maduro and the Inter-American League | SABR
When Maduro passed away on October 16, 1986 at the age of 70 from brain cancer, it was front page news of El Nuevo Herald, the Spanish newspaper of Miami, Florida. Fausto Miranda, the dean of Cuban sportswriters, eulogized Maduro:
In fitting tribute to Maduro, Miami Stadium was renamed Bobby Maduro Stadium in 1987. This stadium was home to the Miami Amigos
To remember the personality of Bobby Maduro as a distinguished Cuban sportsman does not do him justice. The death of Maduro is a loss for Latin America. The dreamer and enthusiast dedicated more than half a century of his 70 years to the enlargement of baseball ‘without borders and without prejudices,’ as he said himself. Maduro traveled all the paths of the great national sport.23

I sold the bat to a buyer from Colorado. I received what I think was a fair price.
