Biographical Information[edit]

Jose Aguiar was a pitcher in the minor leagues from 1949 to 1954. He started out with the Newport Canners of the Mountain States League, going 8-8, 4.97. With the same team the following season, 1950, he went 12-15, 4.92. However, his season was notable because he pitched two no-hitters. The first came on June 23rd, a 7-0 win against the Big Stone Gap Rebels, and the second on August 19th, a 9-0 win over the Morristown Red Sox. The first of the no-hitters received additional coverage because it was followed the next day by Newport being the victims of another no-hit game, this one at the hands of Tom Dunovant of the Harlan Smokies.

In 1951, he moved up two levels, from Class D to Class B, joining the Galveston White Caps of the Gulf Coast League, for which he also pitched in 1952 and part of 1953. He remained around .500, going 9-8 and 11-12 the first two seasons, with ERAs of 4.97 and 4.21. He is credited with a record of 19-7 spread among three teams in 1953, including both Galveston and the Texas City Texans of the Gulf Coast League, and the Hopkinsville Hoppers of the Class D Kitty League. A detailed statistical breakdown is not available, but he did most of his work in the Gulf Coast League, as his record for Hopkinsville is only 1-1. He was again with three different teams in 1954, including 4 games at the highest level he would reach, the Class A South Atlantic League - with the Charlotte Hornets, an affiliate of the Washington Senators. he is also credited with a couple of appearances for the West Palm Beach Indians of the Florida International League and 14 games for the Texas City Pilots/Thibodaux Pilots of the Evangeline League. The Gulf Coast League had disappeared after the 1953 season, and Texas City had joined the Evangeline League, a Class C league, as a result. There is no record of his playing anywhere after that, and personal details about him are scant.
