Alfredo Griffin

Biography:Alfredo Griffin (born October 6, 1957 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) was a Major League Baseball (MLB) player. He played shortstop.

Alfredo began his career as a member of the Cleveland Indians, who signed him as an amateur free agent in 1973. On December 5, 1978, before having played a full season in the majors, he was traded along with Phil Lansford (minors) to the Toronto Blue Jays for Victor Cruz. Alfredo made an immediate impact, co-winning the American League Rookie of the Year Award in 1979 with John Castino.

In 1984 he was named to the All-Star team. This was explained by John Feinstein of the Washington Post as: ""Making the All-Star team the hard way: Major league baseball pays the expenses for each player here and for one guest. In most cases, players bring wives or girlfriends. Damaso Garcia, the Toronto Blue Jays' second baseman, brought his shortstop, Alfredo Griffin. When the Tigers' Alan Trammell hurt his arm and could not play tonight, Manager Joe Altobelli named Griffin to the team, partly because he's a fine player, but mostly because he was here."

Alfredo won the AL Gold Glove Award for a shortstop in 1985.

Alfredo was the starting shortstop of the 1988 World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers team, and called one of the overachieving "stunt men" of that team who helped win the championship.

He is currently a coach for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in MLB, and also for the Estrellas Orientales (Eastern Stars) in his native Dominican Republic's Winter League.
