1993 Studio Roberto Alomar

Favorite sports announcer is Harry Caray: Alomar’s first three years in the major leagues were in the National League so may have gotten to meet Caray at a Padres-Cubs game.

Favorite players as a kid were his dad, Sandy Alomar Sr. and Joe Morgan: Roberto was coached by his dad during his time with the Padres. Alomar ended up having a career that most fans agree was at least as good as, if not better than, Morgan’s. They appeared on cards together in 2000 Topps Stars and 2003 Fleer Patchworks.

Most prized possession is his World Series ring: Alomar would win another ring that season.

Might have been a doctor if he hadn’t been an athlete: Alomar did not go into medicine during his career. He allegedly has medical issues of his own – he has been accused by multiple women of exposing them to HIV.

Pet peeves are fighting and jealousy: In addition to the HIV claims Alomar has been accused of domestic abuse and famously spit on umpire John Hirschbeck, so I guess at some point that stopped being a pet peeve.

Where he is now: Special consultant on Puerto Rico to Major League Baseball.
