Roberto Alomar

Second base

Roberto Alomar Velázquez

Bats: Right, Throws: Right
Born: February 5, 1968, Ponce, Puerto Rico

Dazzling, talented Roberto Alomar was arguably the premier second baseman of his era, earning a dozen consecutive All-Star selections. The switch-hitter menaced the opposition at bat and on the basepaths, batting .300 for his career and stealing at least 30 bases in eight seasons. Smart and acrobatic in the field, the second baseman's 10 Gold Glove Awards are the most ever at his position. Alomar exhibited his considerable skills with seven teams over a 17-year big league career, including the 1992 and 1993 Blue Jays, winners of back-to-back World Series.
