For many Toronto Blue Jays fans, the last name Barfield brings back memories of the 1980’s when the Blue Jays were building their club into a perennial contender. Jesse Barfield patrolled right field from 1981 to 1989 and was recognized for having one of the strongest outfield arms in the game. Fourteen years after Jesse retired from the game, his son Josh made his major league debut with the San Diego Padres.
Check out the below video where Josh ranges to his right to rob Ken Griffey Jr. of the Cincinnati Reds of a base hit.
Josh had a stellar rookie campaign in 2006 belting 13 home runs, swiping 21 bases while posting a solid .280 batting average. After the 2006 season, Josh was traded to the Cleveland Indians where he played three more years at the big league level.
Currently, Josh is involved with the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. Josh started his career as an advanced professional scout and has since been promoted to assistant director of professional scouting.
On Saturday November 10, 2018, and Sunday November 11, 2018, Josh Barfield will join Last Raps Baseball for clinics in Vancouver and North Vancouver. There will be two clinics at each location that are age specific. Each clinic is 2.5 hours in length and Josh will be assisted by the Last Raps Baseball Staff. There will be a maximum of 20 participants per session.
