Vic Davalillo was the first Major League player to play for three different teams in the League Championship Series - Pittsburgh Pirates in 1971 & 1972, Oakland Athletics in 1973 and the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1977. Some additional years of note:

1953: Vic Davalillo had an older brother, Yo-Yo Davalillo , who also played in the big leagues for the 1953 Washington Senators .

1962: Vic Davalillo won the first batting title in the Jacksonville Suns (Minor Leagues, Triple-A at that time) history with a .346 batting average in 1962.

1963: Vic Davalillo broke into the big leagues in 1963, only the eighth player in history born in Venezuela at the time.

1964: Vic Davalillo won his first and only Gold Glove in the outfield in 1964, the third Cleveland Indians player to capture that hardware behind Minnie Minoso (1959) and Jimmy Piersall (1961).

1970: Vic Davalillo started 23 games, pinch hit in 74 games, and had 23 pinch hits at the end of the season, one shy of the Major League record for pinch hits in a season (at that time) held by Dave Philley who had 24 with Baltimore in 1961.

The Venezuelan Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum was founded on April 18, 2002. The "Salón de la Fama y Museo del Béisbol Venezolano" offers visitors the origins and growth of baseball in the world and the history of what is known as the National sport of Venezuela. It also shows, through its exhibitions, the most prominent players who have made significant achievements, as well as efforts to honor people who have highlighted the activity of baseball in Venezuela, recognizing and appreciating their impact on national culture and exalt those who have made outstanding contributions to the sport. The inaugural class of 2003 included the following Major League players: Luis Aparicio , Alex Carrasquel , Chico Carrasquel , Dave Concepcion , Vic Davalillo , Diego Segui , and Cesar Tovar .
