RIP Jose Pagan

He was a starter on the early 1960s teams, and wound up 11th in the MVP voting in 1962. He was traded straight up in mid-season 1965 for Dick Schofield of the Pirates. A year later, the Giants sold Schofield to the Yanks and began starting Tito Fuentes at short.

Chris Haft's obit on the Giants site notes that he played 164 games in 1962.

He got to play in the 1962 and 1971 World Series and went 11 for 34.
