Etchebarren was 76-years-old.
The catcher was a breakout rookie in Baltimore’s run to the 1966 World Series title, after five Minor League seasons.
Etchebarren was the last Orioles player to make the All-Star Game as a rookie until left-hander John Means did so this year.
He was also the O’s bench coach from 1996-97 under Davey Johnson, and managed 16 seasons, MLB reported.
