 Biographical Information
Ruben Amaro is the father of Ruben Amaro, Jr. and David Amaro and son of Santos Amaro. Amaro also has two kids from his second marriage who are Ruben Andres Amaro, born Feb. 23, 1990 and Luis Alfredo Amaro, born Jan. 17, 1989. They're both currently playing ball as well and hope to follow in their father's footsteps in achieving the goal of becoming MLB players. Amaro also has a daughter Alayna Amaro, born Jan. 24, 1984.
While his Cuban-born father was a Mexican League star, the Mexican-born Ruben Sr. only had five at-bats in the Liga. Known primarily for his defense and versatility, Amaro's only season with impressive offensive statistics was 1955 when he hit .309 with 18 HR for the Mexicali Eagles of the Arizona-Mexico League. When Amaro was selected to the Salon de la Fama in 1986 he and his father became the first father-son duo to be so honored.
Amaro was a scout for the Phillies from 1973 to 1982, and the Latin American Scouting Supervisor for the Cubs in 1988. He then scouted for the Detroit Tigers in the 90s.
