Enzo Hernandez, who played for both the Padres and the Dodgers in the ’70s, has died of an apparent suicide.

The 63-year old was found in his home in Venezuela on Sunday, although no details are forthcoming surrounding his death. Hernandez had, however, reportedly been receiving treatment for depression. As the only Venezuelan inducted into the baseball Hall Of Fame, Hernandez batted .224 with 522 hits, stealing a career-high 37 bases in 1974 and had a career 80% success rate on stolen bases.

Former teammates and fans as well as those still in the profession took to the web today to express their condolences and to remember the fiery player who became a living legend.
