Player Profile: Sal Agostinelli

I have one card of Sal Agostinelli, from 1989 Best.

Playing career: Catcher Sal Agostinelli played nine seasons in the Cardinals and Phillies organizations, hitting .245 with 3 HR and 191 RBI. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: The International Scouting Director for the Phillies, he also owns Sal Agostinelli’s Long Island Baseball in King’s Park, NY.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is ninth when you type Sal A, between Sal Arnuk, an investment banker, and Sal and Richard, a comedic prank-calling team. There do not appear to be any other prominent Sal Agostinellis.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brian Ahern.
