Cam Carreon

Camilo Carreon (August 6, 1937 - September 2, 1987) was a Major League Baseball player from 1959 to 1966 for the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles. His son Mark Carreon was also a Major League baseball player.

Carreon was late reporting to Sarasota, Florida for spring training in 1960, because of service in the U.S. Army. ["Donovan Pitches In His First Drill", New York Times, March 8, 1960, Page 39.] In June 1960 he was hitting .270 with San Diego Padres (PCL) of the Pacific Coast League. ["Yankees Now Dismiss White Sox As Contenders in Pennant Race", New York Times, June 21, 1960, Page 40.] Carreon hit a 2-run single off Whitey Ford to give Juan Pizarro a 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees on August 15, 1961. The second inning hit enabled the White Sox to break a 14 game winning streak by Ford. ["Pizarro Wins, 2-1, On Carreon's Hit", New York Times, August 16, 1961, Page 23.] The White Sox placed Carreon on the disabled list on July 3, 1964 after he tore tendons in his right arm. ["Injury Sidelines Carreon", New York Times, July 4, 1964, Page 17.] He was part of a three way trade with the Cleveland Indians and Kansas City Athletics. In the spring of 1965 Carreon was listed as the Indians' 2nd string catcher, behind Joe Azcue. ["American League", New York Times, February 21, 1965, Page S2.] He was one of five players assigned by Cleveland to the Portland Beavers of the Pacific Coast League in October 1965. ["Indians Drop Five Men", New York Times, October 17, 1965, Page S6.]
