Career highlights and awards

Camilo Alberto Pascual Lus (born January 20, 1934 in Havana, Cuba) is a former Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher who had an 18-year career from 1954 to 1971. He played for the Washington Senators, which relocated in 1961 and became the Minnesota Twins. He later played for the second Washington Senators franchise (which relocated to Texas after his career) and the Cleveland Indians, all of the American League. He also played for the Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers, both of the National League.

Pascual's best pitches were his overhand curveball, described by Ted Williams as the "most feared curveball in the American League for 18 years," and his fastball.[1] He finished with a record of 174-170 and a 3.63 ERA in 529 games. He struck out 2167 in 2930⅔ innings pitched.

He was elected to the American League All-Star team 5 times (1959-1962, 1964). In the '61 All-Star Game he pitched three hitless innings and struck out four.

He led the league in strikeouts in 1961 (221), 1962 (206) and 1963 (202). He is currently #51 on the all-time strikeout list. Pascual also led the league in complete games three times (1959, 62, 63), and came in second two more times (1961, 64).

His career-high for complete games was 18, in '62 and '63. He was also a 20-game winner in those two seasons.

Pascual is the younger brother of former major league pitcher Carlos Pascual.
