Roberto Alomar was a team leader that led by example on the baseball field. Consistency, dedication, and naturally born talent. Alomar grew up in Salinas, Puerto Rico, and was the son of a Major League All Star (Sandy Alomar). By the time he was 22 years old, Alomar had not only realized his dream, but was already an All Star himself! Very early into his career, Alomar had already established himself as the top fielding second baseman in the league, and was one of the leading hitters in baseball.
Roberto really began to enter his prime when he played for the Toronto Blue Jays, and what a difference a super star second baseman can make to a baseball team. Consider the 1992 American League Championship Series. The Toronto Blue Jays led 2-1 in games but trailed 6-4 in the ninth inning of game 4. With a runner on third and a 2-2 count on Alomar, Oakland\'s ace reliever, Dennis Eckersley, threw a fastball down the middle of the plate. Alomar wasn\'t known at the time to be a power hitter, but he blasted the ball out of the pard and then San Diego Padres Jersey threw up his hands in celebration. The Blue Jays won San Diego Padres Jersey that contest and went on to oust the A\'s in six games. What was Alomar\'s numbers for the entire series? Five stolen bases, a.423 batting average, and two home runs. He easily won the MVP award and cemented his reputation as the best second baseman in baseball.
Roberto Alomar is the latest inductee into the Hall of Fame, and his numbers will undoubtedly declare that he is one of the best second basemen in Major League Baseball history.
