César Antonio Crespo (born May 23, 1979 in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico) is a former second baseman who last played in the Baltimore Orioles organization. Listed at 5'11, 170 lb., Crespo is a switch-hitter and throws right-handed. He is the younger brother of Felipe Crespo.
Crespo is a 10-year minor league veteran who had brief stints in Major League Baseball with the San Diego Padres (2001–02) and Boston Red Sox (2004). His most productive season came in 2001 with San Diego, when he hit .209 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 55 games, all career-highs. On June 7 of that year, Crespo and his brother Felipe homered in the same game, joining a select club of major league brothers who have accomplished the same honor. He also won a World Series ring as a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox (he did not play in the 2004 World Series, the 2004 playoffs, or the second half of the season).
