Club careerEdit

Born into a family of bullfighters, in La Algaba on 26 March 1922, Bazán began his football career at Sevilla. Bazán picked up a meniscus injury whilst at Sevilla, halting his progress with the club. Bazán moved onto Sparta Sevilla, CD Algabeño, Hércules de Cadiz and Olímpica Jiennense, before signing for Málaga in December 1946.[1]

On 5 January 1947, Bazán scored his first goal for Málaga, in his second game, scoring the winner in a 2–1 away win against Alcoyano. The 1947–48 Segunda División season proved to be prolific for Bazán. On 5 October 1947, Bazán scored five goals against Badalona in an 8–3 victory. On 4 January 1948, Bazán scored a triple hat-trick against Hércules in a 9–2 win.[2] Bazán finished the 1947–48 season with 29 goals in 26 Segunda División appearances. The following season, Bazán finished the campaign as top scorer, scoring five hat-tricks, as Málaga gained promotion to the Primera División.[3] On 15 March 1953, Bazán scored an 11 minute hat-trick against Real Madrid.[2]

In 1954, Bazán signed for Deportivo La Coruña. Bazán scored one hat-trick for Deportivo, in a 4–0 win against Real Sociedad on 14 October 1956.[2]
