Former major league outfielder and two-time World Series champion Jesus Alou died Friday at the age of 80, the Boston Red Sox announced.
Alou recently suffered two cardiovascular accidents, but he hadn't been diagnosed with a serious illness, a family source told ESPN's Enrique Rojas.
Alou spent 15 seasons in the majors with the Houston Astros, Oakland Athletics, New York Mets and San Francisco Giants. He won both of his World Series titles as a bench player for the Athletics.
Alou is the youngest of the legendary trio of Dominican brothers who played together in the majors.
