Sandy Alomar, Jr. Stats

Sandy Alomar, Jr. was born on Saturday, June 18, 1966, in Salinas, Puerto Rico. Alomar, Jr. was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 30, 1988, with the San Diego Padres. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive , Jr. baseball stats page.

"San Diego put all of the training into Sandy Jr.'s catching future but reaped none of the benefits. In 1990 he was traded to the Cleveland Indians and became an instant All-Star, as well as the American League Rookie of the Year. 'I feel very happy to win,' Sandy Jr. said 'You only get one chance.' ... Sandy Jr. embarked on a 17-year career and was chosen for six All-Star teams. Sandy Jr. considered himself more of a self-made ballplayer than his brother Robby , who had more pure talent. ' Robby is The Natural,' Sandy Jr. said. 'He has God given gift. Hey, there were at least three players on my Little League team better than me.'" - Author Lew Freedman in Latino Baseball Legends: An Encyclopedia: An Encyclopedia (Greenwood Publishing, 08/11/2010, Page 62)
