Biographical Information[edit]

Julio Mosquera hit .438 for Panama in the 1999 Pan American Games to finish fifth in average. He batted .333/.371/.636 with 7 RBI in 9 games for Panama in the 2001 Baseball World Cup. His 3 home runs tied Evert-Jan 't Hoen for second, one behind Chin-Feng Chen. In the 2003 Baseball World Cup, he hit .257/.282/.286 but threw out five of seven would-be base-stealers as Panama won its first Silver medal ever.

He appeared in the majors in three different seasons - 1996 and 1997 with the Toronto Blue Jays and 2005 with the Milwaukee Brewers - but only for a total of 11 games. He went 7 for 31 (.226), with 3 doubles in those games. The bulk of his playing career was spent in the minor leagues from 1993-2005. Mosquera played in the Toronto Blue Jays system for seven years before starting to move from organization to organization.

After completing his playing career, Mosquera joined the New York Yankees player development team. He was a coach for the Staten Island Yankees in 2006-2007. Simultaneously he worked as the Yankees minor league catching coordinator, a role that he retained through the 2014 season. Since 2015 Mosquera has been a manager in the Yankees organization.

He was scheduled to be manager of the Trenton Thunder in 2020 before the season was cancelled due to COVID-19.
