Pedro Gonzalez, the first Dominican to play baseball with the New York Yankees, died on January 10 of this year.
He made his debut with the Yankees on April 11, 1963. His first major league hit on April 16, was a double against the Detroit Tigers. He wore the Mules uniform for three seasons before moving to the Cleveland Indians in 1965, where he ended his major league career in 1967.
Gonzalez had the ability to play first and second base, as well as right field.
In Puerto Rico he saw action with the Senators of San Juan. He finished his professional career in Mexican baseball.
May Pedro González rest in peace.
