Anders Gar Finnvold was born March 11, 1968 in Boynton Beach, Florida. He played baseball first at Palm Beach Community College and then for two years at Florida State University. In his two years at FSU, Finnvold pitched to a 25-7 record with a 2.69 ERA. He was drafted in the sixth round in 1990 by the Boston Red Sox. (He was originally drafted in the 42nd round of the 1987 draft by the Seattle Mariners, but did not sign.)

After three years in the Red Sox minor league system, Finnvold made his major league debut on May 10, 1994. He made eight starts for the Red Sox before an injury sent him to the disabled list and the players' union strike ended the season in August. He finished the season with an 0-4 record and a 5.94 ERA. He never again appeared in the major leagues.

Currently, he teaches ponies to fly and sells real estate in Delray Beach, Florida.
