1971 World Series Hero Jose Pagan Dies

SAN JUAN Ė Jose Antonio Pagan, one of the first Puerto Ricans in Major League Baseball and a hero of the Pittsburgh Piratesí 1971 World Series win, died Tuesday in Florida. He was 76.

Pagan made his big league debut in 1959 with the San Francisco Giants and continued with the team until 1965, when he was traded to the Pirates.

His 15-year-long career included two World Series appearances.

He was part of the 1962 Giants squad that lost to the New York Yankees in a series that went the full seven games. Pagan hit .368 and had a home run in the losing effort.

In 1971, it was Paganís eighth-inning double that drove in what proved to be the winning run in the seventh game of the Piratesí series with the Baltimore Orioles.

Paganís best season was in 1962, when he logged 150 hits for a .259 average and scored 73 runs. With a career batting average of .250, he accumulated 922 hits and 372 RBIs.

A native of Barceloneta, northwest of San Juan, Pagan was on the Pirates coaching staff from 1974-1978 and also managed the Bayamon Vaqueros to back-to-back titles in the Puerto Rican league in 1974-75 and 1975-76. EFE
