  • Evelio Hernandez and George Genovese, former Senators players, pass away

    Evelio Hernandez played 18 games for the Senators in 1956 and 1957, going 1-1 with a 4.45 ERA. At 82 years old at the time of his death, he was actually one of the younger original Senators to pass away. He died December 18.

    Evelio Hernandez, a Cuban-born pitcher for the Washington Senators in the 1950s, passed away Friday December 18, 2015 at his home in Miami, Florida, just days shy of his 85th birthday. The reporting of his death was confirmed by former Almendares teammate Cholly Naranjo.

    Legendary baseball scout George Genovese, who left his family's Clove Road home for the minor leagues in the days before World War II and remained in the game for the next 75 years, scouting and signing the likes of Bobby Bonds, Dave Kingman and George Foster, died Sunday in Burbank, Ca.

    An undersized middle-infielder whose one official big league at-bat came early in the 1950 season with the woeful Washington Senators, was one of five baseball-playing brothers raised in depression-era Staten Island who loved to tell stories of chasing grazing goats off empty North Shore lots in order to play pick-up games.
