Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jos Alberto "Coco" Laboy (born July 3, 1939) was a Puerto Rican Major League Baseball player. He was signed by the San Francisco Giants as an amateur free agent in 1959 but remained mired in the minor leagues until the 1969 expansion of major league baseball, which added two teams to both leagues. The expansion Montreal Expos drafted Laboy from the St. Louis Cardinals organization. Laboy was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico. As a 29-year old rookie, he excelled at the plate. His 145 hits gave him an average of .258, and he slugged 18 home runs and drove in 83 runs. He tied for second place with Al Oliver for the 1969 National League Rookie of the Year Award, which was won by Ted Sizemore.show more
