Ángel Peña [PAY-nyah] (born February 16, 1975 in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic), was a Major League Baseball catcher. Signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers as an amateur free agent in 1992, Peña made his major league debut with the Dodgers on September 8, 1998, and appeared in his final game on June 1, 2001. At one point in his career, Peña was heralded as the catcher of the future for the Dodgers. He initially was to take the spot of the traded Mike Piazza. However, poor conditioning and the emergence of future All-Star Paul Lo Duca spelled the end of Peña's days as a Dodger, and subsequently as a major league catcher. Pena was released by the Dodgers on October 15, 2001. He briefly played in the San Francisco Giants minor league system and in independent baseball leagues after that but is now out of baseball.
