Out of stock
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.
Presented is one of Ruben Sierra’s game worn jerseys from his time with Santurce. Sierra is a former outfielder in the Majors and went by the nicknames El Caballo and El Indio. Over 20 seasons, Sierra played for the Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics, New_York_Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Cincinnati Reds, Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago White Sox, Seattle Mariners and Minnesota Twins. Sierra also signed with the Cleveland_Indians at the end of 1999, but was released towards the end of spring training in March 2000.
The pinstriped jersey features the front team logo on the chest sewn-on in navy blue. The sleeve has a circular “44” patch sewn on as an identifier. The back has a Sierra nameplate sewn-on with the lettering in navy blue felt. As many of these jerseys were recycled over the years, it should be noted the nameplate was sewn over a previous name. The verso also has his number “44” sewn on in navy blue. There is a Wilson tag that dates to the late ’70s to early ’80s in the collar with the size 40 and wash instructions. The jersey shows heavy wear throughout with loose threads, soiling and sweat stains. Overall, a rare treat from a wonderful Puerto Rican player.
