Roberto is the younger son born to Santos Alomar Sr. and Maria Velázquez and has an older brother, Santos Jr. who is also a successful baseball player. Their father, Santos Sr. played baseball, and as a result, the two were raised by their mother, Maria, since Santos was busy traveling with his career. Growing up in awe of his father’s brilliant career, Roberto would spend summer with his father in the States. Once he turned 17 years of age, Roberto signed a professional contract with the San Diego Padres, but played minor league for the Calls-A affiliate in Charleston. In 1986 he batted .346 which was enough to become California League batting champion. In 1988 he experienced major league baseball for the first time, playing for the Padres, and just two years later got his first All-Star appearance.
Before the end of 1990, Roberto and Joe Carter were traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for Fred McGriff and Tony Fernández. He played for the Blue Jays until 1995, during which time he developed into one of the best offensive players, preferably playing as a second baseman, and has won numerous individual awards while on the team. He has earned five All-Star appearances and won the Silver Slugger Award in 1992. Furthermore, he became World Series champion with the Blue Jays in 1992 and 1993, while in 1992 he was also named as ALCS MVP.

He played for the Orioles until 1998, and just continued where he left off in Toronto, winning another Golden Glove Award and his second Silver Slugger Award, not to mention that he appeared in his eighth, ninth and tenth All-Star games. However, he also had an altercation with John Hirschbeck of the Toronto Blue Jays, when during the game between these two teams, Roberto spat at John.
