Andres Galarraga


Galarraga played for the Jamestown Expos in 1981 hitting .260 with six home runs and 26 RBI in 47 games.

He went on to have a 19-year Major League career playing for seven different teams including Montreal, St. Louis, Colorado, Atlanta, Texas, San Francisco and Anaheim.

Nicknamed "The Big Cat" for his impressively quick reflexes as a first baseman in spite of his large physical size, Galarraga was a five time All-Star, won two National League Gold Glove Awards and two NL Silver Slugger Awards while being named the MLB Comeback Player of the Year Award on two occasions.

He finished his career with 399 major league home runs and a .280 career batting average.
