Infielder Carlos Alonso played seven seasons in the Phillies organization. In 487 games he hit .270 with 24 HR and 183 RBI. Now a minor league coach in the Phillies organization, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.
"Always collected cards since I was a little boy. I haven't bought
baseball cards since I was 15 years old. I have a collection passed down
to me from my grandpa. My favorite player has always been Barry Bonds
and my favorite card of myself is my first year, I was swinging at a
high pitch so the swing looked really funny. Collecting cards is an
amazing hobby that I hope to pass down to my kids someday."
