Charles Aleno, who played for the Cincinnati Reds in parts of four seasons, died on February 10, 2003 in DeLand, Fla. He was 85.

In his major league career, Aleno played 84 games at third, as well as spending some time at first, second, short and in the outfield. In 320 major league at-bats, Aleno hit .209 with 2 home runs, 34 RBI and 3 stolen bases.

In 1944, Aleno hit one home run in 127 at-bats. That home run came as the winning and only run in a 1-0 no-hitter.

He last played for the Reds in 1945, but continued to play baseball on some level into the 1950s.

Following his career in baseball, he was a concessionaire at DeLand ballparks for more than 40 years. In the late 1950s, he was the owner of Aleno Interiors, a business he eventually turned over to his son.

He was a charter member of the Rockland County, N.Y., Professional Sports Hall of Fame.
