Player Profile: Eliezer Alfonzo

I have one card of Eliezer Alfonzo, from 2007 Topps.

Playing career: Eliezer Alfonzo was a backup catcher for the Giants from 2006-2008. He played briefly with the Padres in 2009 and Mariners in 2010.

Where he is now: Now with the Rockies, he made his 2011 debut on July 16, and is 4-17 with a run scored. Yesterday he went 1-4 in a victory against the Dodgers.

My memories: The name was vaguely familiar but I hadn’t heard much about him before getting his card.

Interesting facts: A second cousin of former Met Edgardo Alfonzo.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Eliezer A, before Eliezer Ayalon, a Holocaust survivor. There do not appear to be any other prominent Eliezer Alfonzos.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Luis Alicea.
