José Castillo Rondón was a Major League baseball player for the Pittsburgh Pirates (2004-2007), San Francisco Giants (2008), and Houston Astros (2008). On December 6, 2018, Jose and Luis Valbuena died in a car crash during an attempted robbery. The duo were playing in the Venezuelan Winter League, had just won a game versus the Leones del Caracas, and were traveling from Caracas to Barquisimeto when the crash occurred.

Did you know that when Jose Castillo hit fourteen home runs in 2006, it was the most by a Bucs second baseman since Warren Morris hit fifteen dingers in 1999 ? Only two other Pirates second basemen have hit fifteen-or-more home runs in a season, Bill Mazeroski (19 HRs in 1958 & 16 HRs in 1966 ) and George Grantham (18 HRs in 1930 ).
