We remember Tony Taylor who died today

We remember Tony Taylor, who was born in Central Alava, Matanzas, Cuba. He was born in 1935 and died today. 

Tony broke with the Cubs in 1958 hitting .235 in 140 games. He was traded to the Phillies and enjoyed a very good career: 2.007 hits, a .261 average, 234 stolen bases and 1,005 runs scored. He had a couple of seasons with 700-plus plate appearances, a test to his durability.  

Taylor retired in 1976. Tony is one of a handful of major leaguers who played in the pre-Castro winter league and the majors.
