Edgardo Alfonzo Signs With Giants

Fonzie didn’t sign with those Giants, the other Giants. I’m talking about the Yomiuri Giants of the Central League in Nippon Professional Baseball. Fonzie last played with the Mets in 2002 before moving on to the San Francisco Giants, Angels, and Blue Jays. He hasn’t played in the majors since 2006.

Edgardo Alfonzo #13

It’s a little sad to see a player that I liked so much with the Mets relegated to the Japanese league. But when I see that he made more than $47 million during his U.S. career, I don’t feel so sad.

The Venezuelan native put up some very respectable numbers during his career. His line is .284/ .357/ .425 with 146 HR and 744 RBI.

One thought on “Edgardo Alfonzo Signs With Giants”

  1. Fonzie was great for the Met’s. It was sad to see him leave. In 1999, the infield defense was arguably the best ever for one season (45 errors by the infield). Edgardo was a huge part of that team. Baseball Reference lists his birthdate as 1973. He was one of ‘those guys’ that had to adjust his age prior to the 2002 season. That may have hurt him silghtly. He was probably closer to 1969 than to 1973.
