Player Profile: Hiram Bocachica

I have four cards of Hiram Bocachica. This one is from 1996 Best.

Playing career: Outfielder Hiram Bocachica played eight years in the major leagues for the Dodgers, Tigers, Mariners, A’s and Padres. In 272 games he hit .215 with 15 HR and 37 RBI. He also spent time in Japan.

Blog synchronicity: This is the 2003rd post on this blog. In 2003 Bocachica spent most of the season in the minors but did appear in six games for the Detroit Tigers in April, getting one hit in 22 at-bats.

Where he is now: A player agent at The Legacy Agency.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when  you type Hiram Bo, ahead of Hiram Bonner, former executive administrator for NYC Mayor Dinkins. There do not appear to be any other prominent Hiram Bocachicas.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bruce Bochte.
