Tony Bernazard began his pro career by signing with the Montreal Expos as a free agent in 1973 as a 17 year-old. He worked his way up the minor league ladder and made his big league debut with the Expos in 1979. After the 1980 season, his first full year in the majors, the Expos dealt Bernazard to the Chicago White Sox for pitcher Rich Wortham. The deal was not a good one for the Expos as Wortham, a former member of the White Sox starting rotation, struggled in the minors and never pitched for the Expos while Bernazard became the White Sox starting second baseman. Bernazard remained with the Chisox until midway through the 1983 season when he was dealt to the Seattle Mariners for their starting second baseman Julio Cruz. Bernazard finished the 1983 season with the Mariners and was dealt by the club in the offseason to the Cleveland Indians for Jack Perconte and Gorman Thomas. He had his best season in the big leagues with the Indians in 1986 when he hit .301 with 17 homers, 73 RBIs along with 17 stolen bases. Bernazard remained with the Indians until the middle of the 1987 season when the Indians dealt him to the Oakland A's for minor leaguers Darrel Akerfelds and Brian Dorsett. Bernazard finished the 1987 season with the A's and then did not play again until he resurfaced with the Detroit Tigers in 1991. He made the team out of spring training and played in 6 games for the Tigers before being released early in the season. In his career, Bernazard played in 1,071 big league games and hit .262 with 75 home runs.
