Minnie Minoso, 1st Black Latino To Play In MLB, Dies At 89

Chicago, Illinois – It was many decades ago that Minnie Minoso decided to come to the USA to play major league baseball. At a time when Jackie Robinson had barely paved the way for minorities to play in the league, Minnie Minoso was both black and a Latino. Coming from such a diverse background, Minnie had struggles while gaining acceptance as a respected player. For roughly 50 years he championed some causes to help integrate the sport, and helped make it what it is today.

Minnie Minoso Dies At 89

Minnie Minoso reportedly died this morning at the old age of 89. He had reportedly gotten in his car, and was found dead in it later on. It is not clear if he was aware that he was dying, or if it was pure luck that it didn’t happen on the road. His death was announced to the media by the Chicago Cubs franchise, who showed their respect for their passing player.

Despite being a long-time beloved Chicago White Sox player, and a local celebrity in Chicago, he was never elected in to the Baseball Hall of Fame. It may have been politics, or any other reason why he never made it, but he was certainly worthy of induction in many people’s minds.

Minoso was known for having played Major League Baseball in a career that spanned 5 decades. He may not have played for a full 50 years, but his willingness to come out of retirement for a few games here and there drew some decent sized crowds. His last time at bat was likely in 1980.

Early reports indicate that the cause of death was likely a tear in his pulmonary artery.
