Manny Sanguillen

Pittsburgh Pirates legend Manny Sanguillen is a three-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion and fan favorite. Known for his ebullient personality, wide smile and big bat, Sanguillen hit .296 over 13 Major League seasons, 12 with the Pirates, where he became a fixture in the Pittsburgh community.

One of the best catchers of the 1970s, Sanguillen played for the Pirates in 1967, 1969-76 and 78-80, and for the Oakland A's in 1977. He hit 65 home runs and drove in 585 runs in his career, earning a reputation as a top defensive player as well as a dependable hitter.

The Panama native has called Pittsburgh home since retiring from baseball, where he has become a fixture at PNC Park, home of the Pirates, and all around Greater Pittsburgh. He has also gained renown for his "Manny Sanguillen's Hall of Fame Sauce" barbeque sauce, a favorite among Pittsburghers.
