MINNEAPOLIS -- Former pitcher Camilo Pascual has been elected to the Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame, as the 24th member.

The Cuban-born right-hander will be honored during a pregame ceremony at Target Field on July 14. He is 78.

Pascual spent 13 of his 18 major-league seasons with the Twins and Washington Senators franchise from 1954-66. He was a five-time All-Star selection, and the Twins' first in 1961 after the move from Washington.

Pascual led the American League in both complete games and strikeouts in 1962 and 1963 and helped the Twins to their first World Series in 1965.

Twins President Dave St. Peter also confirmed Friday the team will add a bronze statue outside the ballpark this season to honor an eighth person, former first baseman Kent Hrbek.
