Player Profile: Juan Bernhardt

I have two cards of Juan Bernhardt. This one is from 1978 Topps.

Playing career: Infielder Juan Bernhardt played for the Yankees and Mariners from 1976 to 1979. In 154 games, he hit .238 with 9 HR and 43 RBI. A fuller account of his career can be found at Baseball 1977.

Interesting facts: His son Cesar played eight seasons of professional baseball, mostly in the White Sox organization. Juan was a White Sox scout when the team signed Cesar.

Where he is now: A baseball instructor in the Dominican Republic.

My memories: Before my time. Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is eighth when you type Juan Bern, between Juan Bernat Fifa 14, referring to a soccer player, and Juan Bernal Villegas D.D.S., a dentist in California. Another prominent Juan Bernhardt is a Customs Entry Specialist at DB Schenker.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Dale Berra.
