Oscar Azocar

Biography:Oscar Azocar Oscar Gregorio Azócar (Born February 21, 1965 in Coro, Venezuela) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder and left-handed batter who played for the New York Yankees (1990) and San Diego Padres (1991-92).

Until 1987 Azócar was a lefty pitcher, and a good one (lifetime 14-5, 2.30 ERA as a pro). Switched to an outfielder, he never met a pitch he didn't like. Azócar was a classic example of the impatient hitter who will swing at almost anything and usually put it in play. It took him 100 major league at-bats to draw his first walk. He normally obliged the pitchers by hitting whatever they threw, and his batting average dropped accordling.

In his 202-game career Azócar hit for .226, with 5 home runs, 36 runs batted in, 38 runs scored, 99 hits, 16 doubles, 10 stolen bases and 12 base on balls. Despite his free-swinging style, he had only 36 strikeouts in 439 at-bats (one every 12 at-bats). Azócar also used his speed selectively and never was caught stealing.


Heaven knows that he wasn't the most talented player around, but Oscar Azócar won my affection because he played ball the way I would have. In other words, he swung at everything. There's a story, probably apocryphal, that while playing in his native Venezuela, he once swung at a pitch meant to deliver an intentional walk -- and he got a hit, too. So while there's a special place in my heart for the 1980s Yankees, that overpaid, underachieving and generally forgettable bunch, my aorta is reserved for Oscar. --Ben Rothfeld, at Baseball Library
