CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Former major leaguer Enzo Hernandez has died in an apparent suicide.

The 63-year-old played for the San Diego Padres between 1971-77 and finished his big league career with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1978.

He was found dead in his home in El Tigre in eastern Venezuela on Sunday. The Venezuelan sports newspaper Lider along with other news media in the country reported Hernandez had committed suicide. Police in the town confirmed Hernandez's death but declined to provide details about the cause.
