 Biographical Information
Tony Solaita played seven seasons in the majors, showing power and an ability to draw walks.
He began to become a power hitter in the low minor leagues, hitting 49 home runs in A ball in 1968, and ended up with 167 minor league home runs. He would not stick in the majors until 1974, however.
He played baseball in Japan (where he belted 155 home runs) following the close of his major league career and returned to his native American Samoa in the 1980s, where he helped to revitalize Little League Baseball.
Tragically, he was murdered in a land dispute in 1990.
