Biography

A New Hampshire native, Romine batted and threw right-handed. After attending Fountain Valley High School, he had an All-American career at Arizona State University, after which he was selected in the second round of the Major League Baseball amateur draft by the Boston Red Sox and subsequently played six seasons in Boston.

On July 16, 1988, Romine connected off the Kansas City Royals' Steve Farr in the bottom of the ninth for a 7-6 Red Sox victory. Romine accomplished the same feat on July 2, 1990, when he blasted a ninth-inning, game-winning home run off the Texas Rangers' Kenny Rogers. In 1989, Romine set a career high in games, filling in for outfielders Dwight Evans and Ellis Burks, batting .274. On July 2, 1989, Romine went 5 for 5 against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The final home run of his career, on May 5, 1991 off the Chicago White Sox Alex Fernandez, was a grand slam. He was released in the middle of the 1991 season after batting .164.

His career stats included a .251 batting average, with 5 home runs and 55 RBIs. He had 30 doubles and 1 triple in 630 career at bats.

Personal

His two sons have both made it to the major leagues. Andrew Romine plays for the Detroit Tigers, while Austin Romine plays for the New York Yankees.[1]

After his retirement from baseball, Romine became a police detective in California.
