Player Profile: Tony Bernazard

I have 33 cards of Tony Bernazard. This one is from 1984 Fleer.

Playing career: Second baseman Tony Bernazard played for five teams in a ten-year major league career. His best season was 1986, when he hit .301 with 17 HR and 73 RBI for Cleveland. In the 1987 Topps set he is listed as an All Star, but he never actually was an all-star.

My memories: I remember him best as the assistant GM for the Mets in the late 2000s, when he famously took his shirt off and challenged some Binghamton Mets to a fight. He also offended Carlos Delgado by trying to recruit him to the Mets by speaking “street Spanish”, and got into fights with other players and reporters.

Where he is now: Works for agent Scott Boras.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Tony Ber, between Tony Berlin, husband of Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner, and Tony Berkman, co-founder of Majestic Research. There do not appear to be any other prominent Tony Bernazards.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Adam Bernero.
