Vinny Castilla Stats

Vinny Castilla was born on Tuesday, July 4, 1967, in Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico. Castilla was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 1, 1991, with the Atlanta Braves. 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 Vinny Castilla baseball stats page.

"He (Vinny Castilla) definitely was one of the best fastball hitters I've ever seen. He could turn around anyone's fastball in his prime. That became a thing around the league, and everybody knew Vinny was a dead fastball hitter, and you could not get a fastball by him. I remember Mark Wohlers throwing 102 when he was in his prime in Atlanta, and he comes in, and Vinny just turned him around." - Teammate Ellis Burks in the Rocky Mountain News (Jack Etkin, 09/04/2006, 'Read for one last blast on Blake Street', Source )
