Andy from Rego Park
March 12, 2002 Had the team made coming out of spring training, 1990. Quit.
April 12, 2002 Met him the summer of 89 at Bill Robinson baseball camp in Staten Island. Nice guy
February 17, 2006 I knew Lombardi in 1985 when he was the number one catcher for the Albany-Colonie Yankees in the Eastern League. Phil was a very friendly guy who showed flashes of major league potential.
November 4, 2007 Absolutely, positively could not throw. Not even back to the mound. I remember a game at Shea where Bobby Ojeda was visibly upset at having to jump and bend for each throw back from Lombardi. It was painful to watch.
May 18, 2009 Phil Lombardi is one of only four players (to my knowledge) who have spent their entire major league career with both the Yankees and the Mets, and no one else.
The others are current minor leaguer Brandon Knight, oldtimer Hal Reniff, and some guy Yogi something.
