Fabri Salcedo

A forward who lead the American Soccer League in scoring three times.

Most of Salcedo’s professional playing career, from 1934 to 1948, was in the ASL, though he did play one season, 1939, in Chicago.

Salcedo, who was born in Spain and came to the United States as a teenager in 1929, joined Brooklyn Hispano at the start of the 1934-35 ASL season. He was a star of the Hispano teams that won the ASL-U.S. Open Cup double in 1943 and then took the U.S. Open Cup again in 1944. He had reached the cup final in 1939 with Manhattan Beer of Chicago, and won a second ASL title in 1948 with Philadelphia Americans.

Salcedo took his first ASL scoring title in 1938 with 17 goals in 16 games for Hispano. His second came in 1941, with 29 goals in 20 games for Hispano, and his third in 1946 with 24 goals in 20 games for Hispano.
