The Liga de Béisbol in Puerto Rico reduced the season to sixty games in 1975-76. Roger Moret and Gilberto Rondón served as Cangrejeros de Santurce main players, while Rubén Gómez and Juan Pizarro played another year. Juan Beníquez and Sandy Alomar, Sr. complimented them. Santurce was able to clinch the final playoff berth, defeating the Leones in a series. The Cangrejeros advanced to the semifinals, losing a seven-game series against the Criollos. Pizarro played his final season with the team on 1976-77, while Gómez was signed to the Vaqueros. He, Moret, Rondón, Ramón Hernández and Esteban Texidor were the team’s main figures. The Cangrejeros finished in the fourth place of the regular season standing. The team lost its semifinal to Caguas in six games. Despite having a lineup that included Alomar, Ismael Oquendo, Ruiz, Beníquez and Puchy Delgado among others, Santurce failed to qualify to the post-season in 1977-78.
Juan Pizarro is a former (MLB) pitcher. He played for 18 seasons on 9 teams, from 1957 through 1974. In 1964, he won 19 games (19–9) and pitched four shutouts for the Chicago White Sox. He also was an All-Star in 1963 and 1964.
Presented is one of Juan Pizarro’s game worn flannel jerseys from his time with Santurce. The white jersey features the front team logo on the chest sewn-on in navy blue. The back has the sponsor logo Escuadron Del Panico and “1” sewn-on with the lettering in navy blue felt. There is a Empire tag with wash instructions/material in the collar. The jersey shows heavy/aging wear throughout with discoloration, loose threads, soiling and sweat stains. Overall, a rare treat from a wonderful Puerto Rican player.
