Biographical Information[edit]

Brother of Camilo Pascual, Carlos Pascual pitched well in his two outings in the majors with the Washington Senators in 1950. His ERA in 17 innings was just 2.12, and he gave up only 12 hits. He was only 19 years old. On the other hand, he was a bit wild, with 8 walks. Pascual was one of six pitchers of Cuban background who came up to the 1950 Washington Senators.

Pascual was signed as an infielder in 1949. He appeared in 50 games as a 3rd baseman and 44 as a shortstop in the class D Longhorn League in 1950, yet made his major league debut as a pitcher later that year. In December 1952 he was drafted by the Seattle Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League. He was very successful in the Serie del Caribe, winning two games in the Serie three different times. In 1960, he played for Cienfuegos. In 1967 a Venezuelan baseball card showed him with the Tigres de Aragua. Later he managed in Venezuela and won championships in 1969 and 1970.
