Bert Pena Obituary, Death – At the age of 63, Bert Pena, a former Major League Baseball shortstop who played for the Houston Astros, passed away. On January 19, this information was shared throughout various social media platforms by the Puerto Rico Baseball Federation. It has not yet been determined what caused the death.
The following is what is stated in the social media posting that has been translated into English: ‘ADALBERTO ‘BERTO’ PEÑA The Puerto Rico Baseball Federation, along with its President Dr. José Daniel Quiles Rosas and Board of Directors, expresses its deepest condolences for the loss of Adalberto Berto’ Pea, a former player for the Major League Baseball and the head of Puerto Rico’s National Team. In the face of such a tragic loss, we would like to express our most heartfelt sympathies to his wife, their children, and any other members of his family. Rest in peace.’
Pena was a member of the Astros for a combined total of six seasons, beginning in 1981 and continuing through 1987. Additionally, his son plays baseball at the professional level. Pea’s professional career ran a total of 12 seasons, beginning in 1977 and ending in 1988
. In spite of the fact that he played in the Major Leagues for chunks of six different seasons, he was also a member of the Triple-A Tucson Toros for chunks of each of those seasons. In 1984, he saw his most extensive MLB service, appearing in 24 games played for Houston and collecting his only big-league home run, which he hit off Ricky Horton of the St. Louis Cardinals on September 2 at Busch Stadium; it was Houston’s only run in a loss by a score of 4–1.
In 1985, he saw his most extensive MLB service, appearing in 24 games played for Houston and collecting his only big-league home run. Pea recorded 31 hits across 88 games in the Major Leagues, including four doubles among his total. My condolences go out to his family and friends, and may he finally find some peace in his passing.
