Christopher Jon Widger (born May 21, 1971 in Wilmington, Delaware) is a former Major League Baseball catcher. A third round pick in the 1992 Major League Baseball Draft, Widger played for the Seattle Mariners (1995-1996, 2000), Montréal Expos (1997-2000), New York Yankees (2002), St. Louis Cardinals (2003), Chicago White Sox (2005-2006), and Baltimore Orioles (2006). On July 23, 2006, he was placed on waivers by the White Sox, who had acquired Sandy Alomar, Jr. to replace him as their backup catcher. On August 4, 2006, Widger was signed by the Orioles to a contract for the rest of the 2006 season.

Widger played 9 years in MLB. After playing all of the 2004 season out of the major leagues, (he played with the independent Camden Riversharks), Widger made the Chicago White Sox as a backup. He played catcher, but also played at first base, third base, and once in the outfield. He is a graduate of George Mason University and Pennsville Memorial High School in Pennsville Township, New Jersey.[1]
