Hialeah Murder Suspect Related to Two Major League Pitchers
Gerardo Regalado, the 38-year old man alleged to have shot and killed four women, including his girlfriend, before turning the gun on himself, is the half brother former New York Yankee pitcher Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez.
El Duque, in turn, is the half brother of former Florida Marlin pitcher Livan Hernandez, but it is unclear if Regalado and Livan know each other, reported NBC. Livan won a World Series with the Marlins in 1997 and continues to pitch in the majors. El Duque helped the Yankees win World Series titles in 1998, 1999 and 2000.
