RIP - Gus Gil

Late-60s/early-70s 2nd baseman Gus Gil passed away on December 8, 2015 in Phoenix, AZ at age 76.

Gil was signed by the Reds in 1959, and made his major-league debut for the Indians in early 1967. He was their starting 2nd baseman for the first month or so, then returned to the minors for the 2nd half of the season.

Most of his big-league time was from 1969-71, playing for the Seattle Pilots/Milwaukee Brewers.

He also played baseball in Venezuela from 1959 to 1977, and was inducted into the Venezuelan Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008.
