Player profile: Hector Almonte

Well, the storm's technically not completely over but seems like we'll make it out unscathed. Sure didn't think I'd be posting so soon but we never lost power and the trees all seem to be staying in the ground...

I have one card of Hector Almonte, from 1999 Fleer Tradition Update.

Playing career: Hector Almonte pitched in fifty games for the Marlins in 1999 and the Red Sox and Marlins in 2003. He went 1-4 with a 6.27 ERA. He last pitched professionally for the Somerset Patriots in 2008. Interesting facts: Brother of Brewers outfielder Erick Almonte.

Where he is now: Could not find. Anyone know where Hector Almonte is now?

My memories: Had not heard of him other than from his baseball card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Hector Alm, between Hector Almaguer, head of legal at Universal Music Latin America, and Heitor Almeida, Professor of Finance at the University of Illinois.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Wady Almonte.


  1. I remember seeing Hector Almonte pitch in the Atlantic League, too. He was always chewing on a blade of grass, for some reason.

    I would not be surprised if he's still playing in Mexico somewhere.

  2. He is my pitching coach here in Florida
