In 1966, Cepeda was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals, where he won a World Series title and the NL MVP award in 1967.

The 11-time All-Star also played for the Atlanta Braves (1969-1972) and closed his career with the Oakland A’s, Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals.

His No. 30 jersey was retired by the Giants in 1999, and he also has been honored with a statue outside the ballpark.

Cepeda is the second Puerto Rican player to make the Hall, joining Roberto Clemente.

A seven-time All-Star who played in three World Series, Cepeda was the 1958 NL Rookie of the Year with San Francisco and NL MVP in 1967 with St. Louis. In 1961, he led the NL with 46 homers and 142 RBIs. Cepeda was a .297 career hitter with 379 home runs.

We wish him the best and hope for a speedy recovery.

GOD BLESS.
