[edit] Biographical Information

Infielder John Shoemaker was drafted by San Francisco Giants in the 26th round (564th overall) of the 1974 amateur draft but did not sign. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 35th Round (755th overall) of the 1977 amateur draft and played four seasons in the Dodgers chain from 1977-1980. He started off by batting .322/~.464/.360 for the Clinton Dodgers, with 58 walks in 76 games. He did not qualify for the batting title or he would have matched the league's best mark and led in OBP as well. At .953, he had the best fielding percentage of any third baseman in the Midwest League.

In 1978, John moved on to the Lodi Dodgers and hit .317/~.451/.353 with 93 runs. He made the California League All-Star team at second base, again reaching base very often and playing good defense. He also was the pivot man on two triple plays in the same game against the Fresno Giants on July 25. In 1979, Shoemaker's career came to a skid. He only hit 2 for 18 with 2 walks for Lodi, .245/~.326/.267 for the San Antonio Dodgers and 6 for 28 with 3 walks with the Albuquerque Dukes. In 1980, he batted .242/~.308/.279 for San Antonio and 5 for 26 with a walk for the Dukes. The next year, he became a hitting coach with the Vero Beach Dodgers.

Shoemaker spent 2009-2010 as the Dodgers' Camelback Ranch-Glendale Coordinator of Instruction. He was coach for the AZL Dodgers in 2013.

Shoemaker was drafted in the 6th round by the Chicago Bulls in 1978.
