Career highlights and awards

Michael Peter "Mike" Aldrete (born January 29, 1961 in Carmel, California) is a former first baseman/outfielder in Major League Baseball. The pronunciation of his last name is suggested by the nickname that ESPN's Chris Berman coined for him: "Enough Aldrete", as in the colloquial interjection, "Enough already!"

From 1986 through 1996, Aldrete played for the San Francisco Giants (1986-1988), Montreal Expos (1989-1990), San Diego Padres (1991), Cleveland Indians (1991), Oakland Athletics (1993-1995), California Angels (1995-1996) and New York Yankees (1996). He batted and threw left-handed.

Aldrete's best season was 1987 when he hit .325 with 51 RBI, 50 runs, 116 hits and 18 doubles, all career-highs.

Aldrete's teams made the playoffs twice. The Giants reached the 1987 National League Championship Series and he was a member of the 1996 World Series champion New York Yankees.

Since 2001, Aldrete has maintained a role in professional baseball as a coach. After three years in the minors in the Arizona Diamondbacks chain, he has been a first-base coach for the Seattle Mariners (2004) and served as the hitting coach for the Diamondbacks (2005-2006). In 2008, Aldrete is assisting Hal McRae as a hitting instructor for the St. Louis Cardinals[1].
