An Alamo native, Camilo “The Chief” Estevis hurled for the Broncs from 1956 to 1958 and then went to the pros, once winning Texas League pitcher of the year in 1963 with 16 wins, a 3.74 ERA and 196 strikeouts for the Albuquerque Dukes. That year he amassed a league-high 238 innings and struck out 13 against El Paso in May.

The year before, Estevis had won 19 games for three teams, with a 3.06 ERA pitching part of the year in the American Association for the Omaha Dodgers.

He later went down to Mexico and had two fine seasons with the Vera Cruz Aguilas. Estevis won 52 games in the American minors with a 3.68 ERA and 449 K’s.
