Ex-Buc Jim Pagliaroni has died

6

Pagliaroni spent five seasons with the Pirates, and was the team's semi-regular catcher for four of those years, including the pennant chases of 1965 and 1966. He was initially acquired along with Don Schwall in a trade for "Dr. Strangeglove," Dick Stuart. From 1963-1967, Pagliaroni put up a .254/.341/.399 batting line in 490 games and 1,645 plate appearances, very good offensive numbers for a catcher of that era. In 1965, he set the team's single season record for home runs by a catcher, hitting 17, a record that still stands. He was also an Army veteran, and was active in ALS research after retiring as a player.
