Former Cleveland Indians catcher Hal Naragon dies at 90

CLEVELAND — Former Cleveland Indians catcher Hal Naragon has died, the team announced Saturday morning. He was 90 years old.

“The Indians family is deeply saddened by the passing of Hal Naragon. He will be remembered as a true gentleman, a great teammate and coach. Hal put the ‘magic’ in Barberton,’” said Bob DiBiasio, Indians senior vice president of public affairs.

Naragon was born in Zanesville Ohio and went to high school in Barberton. He signed with the Indians in 1947 and made his debut in 1951. Later, he took a break from baseball to serve in the United States Marine Corps.

RIP.
