Orlando Cepeda Booking Agent Details

Orlando Cepeda played first base in the majors from 1958-1974 with the San Francisco Giants (1958-1966), St. Louis Cardinals (1966-1968), Atlanta Braves (1969-1972), Oakland Athletics (1972), Boston Red Sox (1973) and Kansas City Royals (1974). Cepeda earned 11 trips to the All-Star Game during his career and won N.L. Rookie of the Year honors in 1958 behind a 25 home run, 96 RBI and .312 batting average campaign. Cepeda maintained a career .297 batting average and collected 2,351 hits, 379 home runs and 1,365 RBI. In 1999, he became a member of the Baseball hall of Fame, which at the time made him along with Roberto Clemente just the second Puerto Rican-born player to be inducted (Ivan Rodriguez, Edgar Martinez and Roberto Alomar have since joined). Cepeda’s jersey #30 has been retired by the Giants and he has also been honored with a spot on the Wall of Fame and a bronze statue at Oracle Park.

In 1961, Cepeda led the N.L. with 46 home runs and led all of baseball with a career-best 142 RBI, placing second in that year’s N.L. MVP voting. Cepeda received MVP votes once more in 1966 and won the honor outright the next year, thanks to a 25-home run, 111-RBI performance in which he also batted .325. After his playing days, Cepeda worked as a goodwill advisor with San Francisco. In 2001, Cepeda was honored with the Ernie Banks Positive Image Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his community service. Cepeda was born on September 13, 1937 in Ponce, Puerto Rico.
