 Biographical Information
Pitcher Hank Aguirre played 16 years in the major leagues, sometimes as a reliever and sometimes as a starter. He had his greatest success as a starter, winning the 1962 ERA championship with a 2.21 ERA. As a starter, he had 75 lifetime victories, while as a reliever he had 33 saves while finishing 124 games.
The similarity scores method shows the most similar player as his contemporary Pete Richert, who also split his time between starting and relieving. However, while Richert had more lifetime wins and saves than did Aguirre, he never hit the peak performance that Aguirre did.
He was considered one of baseball's worst hitters. After his baseball career ended, he worked to create jobs for Hispanic workers in the Detroit auto industry. He died of prostate cancer at age 62.
He primarily wore number 37 during his career.
