The Associated Press reports Angelo Giuliani, who played parts of seven big league seasons as a catcher before becoming a scout for the Washington Senators and Minnesota Twins, died at the age of 91 Friday, Oct. 8. Giuliani played in 243 games in the late 1930s and early '40s and was behind the plate when Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio batted for the first time in the big leagues. He was also on the field when Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig gave his famous farewell speech at Yankee Stadium in 1939. As a scout, he signed Kent Hrbek and other players for the Twins before retiring in 1987. KFFL offers our condolences.
