 Biographical Information
Willie Aybar played in the majors from 2005 to 2010. He missed the 2007 season with a variety of problems, ranging from alcohol issues to wrist surgery.
Aybar was a backup to David Ortiz for the Dominican national team in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. He was 2 for 4 with a walk and a double as the team's top offensive performer. He made two crucial defensive gaffes in the make-or-break loss to the Dutch national team. With a 1-1 game and one out in the 11th, he fail to catch a pick-off throw from Carlos Marmol that let Eugène Kingsale move from first to third (Marmol was charged with an error). Yurendell de Caster then grounded to Aybar, who made a game-ending error that eliminated the Dominicans from the tournament.
He is the brother of Erick Aybar of the Angels.
