Player Profile: Josh Barfield

I have ten cards of Josh Barfield. This one is from 2007 Topps Opening Day.

Playing career: Second baseman Josh Barfield played for the Padres and Indians from 2006 to 2009, hitting .264 with 16 HR and 112 RBI in 309 games.

Where he is now: This year, he is playing for the independent Long Island Ducks, hitting .333 with 1 HR and 9 RBI in 22 games.

My memories: I remember him coming up with some hype, and being the son of a former Yankee, I rooted for him to do well, but he flamed out pretty quickly.

Interesting facts: Son of former Yankee Jesse Barfield, and brother of A’s minor leaguer Jeremy Barfield.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Josh Bar, between Josh Barro and Josh Barro bio, which refer to a political writer. There do not appear to be any other prominent Josh Barfields.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Greg Bargar.
