 Biographical Information
Robby Hammock played six seasons in the major leagues, all with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He mostly played catcher, but also appeared in some games at third base and in the outfield.
He has played in the minors of the Diamondback organization some time each year from 1998-2006. In the California League in 1999 and part of 2000 and part of 2001, he hit .332 and .353 and .311.
In the majors in 2003, he hit .282 with a .477 slugging percentage while his defensive time was split between three positions. In 2004 he mostly caught and his average dropped to .241, as he was troubled with knee problems. He did, however, catch Randy Johnson's perfect game in 2004. In 2005, he was sidelined virtually the entire season with injuries.
His 2006 season was notable in that he appeared in one game with the Diamondbacks, getting one hit in two at-bats. In the minors with the Tucson Sidewinders in Triple A ball, he hit .290 and slugged .515 with 20 home runs in 103 games. After not playing in the major leagues for two season, Hammock returned to the D-Backs for 2 games in September of 2011, during which he went 0 for 2. He retired after the season and accepted a position as hitting coach with the AZL Diamondbacks.
