The retired player had construction businesses and investments in multiple business projects. He was also a commentator on the program La Hora del Deporte, by Héctor J Cruz.
Lugo was exercising in a gym in the Dominican capital in the morning and suffered cardiac arrest as he drove home with his driver.
“He felt fine and suddenly he felt dizzy and had a heart attack,” Rafael Santana, Lugo’s compadre, told Diario Libre.
Lugo was 45 years old and played in the majors until 2011.
He was promoted to the majors at age 24 with the Houston Astros (2000), where he was for four years. He later went to the Tampa Bay Stripes between the 2003-2006 seasons, when he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In 2007 he joined the Boston Red Sox, a team with which he was champion of the World Series. He played three years in Boston and in 2009 went on to the St. Louis Cardinals instead. In his last years he played in Baltimore (2010) and Atlanta Braves (2011).
In the 2007 World Series Lugo hit five hits in 13 at-bats in a series that went to a minimum of four games when Boston swept the Colorado Rockies.
In his career in the majors, Lugo hit an indisputable 1,279, 80 homers, 475 RBIs with a .269 batting average, always playing with infield at middle and shortstop.
In 2012 Julio Lugo became champion in Dominican ball for the first time participating with the Leonel del Escogido in a final that went to nine games against the Águilas Cibaeñas.
Lugo was a stellar figure on the field and on the bench of the Lions squad that was the last Dominican ball dynasty to win four championships in seven years.
At the end of his career in Dominican ball, he was appointed special assistant for the team’s operations in 2017. He was also a baseball commentator on the program La Hora del Deporte, by Héctor J Cruz.
