Player Profile: Bob Bafia

I have one card of Bob Bafia, from 1990 CMC.

Playing career: Third baseman Bob Bafia played seven seasons of professional baseball, mostly in the Cubs organization, hitting .246 with 65 HR and 313 RBI. A full account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21Days.

Where he is now: Assistant Head Coach of the independent-league Orange County Flyers, he also coaches with his father, Robert Bafia, for the San Diego Longhorns and Make the Tag Baseball Instruction.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: The first two results when you type Bob Bafi refer to him, ahead of Bob Bafik, Guitarist and singer for the band Can’t Spell Bob. There do not appear to be any other prominent Bob Bafias.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jeff Bagwell.
