Biographical Information[edit]

Alberto Castillo had a catcher's mitt and did travel all over in a professional career that included parts of twelve big league seasons with eight big league teams. He saw his closest to regular activity with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1999, batting .263 in 93 games (74 starts), but may be best remembered for his time with the New York Mets. On Opening Day in 1998, Alberto, the last man on the bench, belted a pinch single to score Brian McRae and end one of the longest Opening Day scoreless games ever played, a 1-0 Met win.

He last played with the Newark Bears of the Atlantic League in 2009, the same year he played once in the 2009 World Baseball Classic as backup to Miguel Olivo for the Dominican Republic.

Castillo was the manager of the DSL Mets 2 in 2011 and DSL Mets 1 in 2012-2014. He was a coach for the DSL Mets 2 in 2015-2017.
