Release: 01/08/2008
Baseball, 1990-1993... Considered one of the greatest college baseball players in NCAA history, hit .344 and belted 88 home runs in 240 games spanning from 1990 to 1993... Became just the second baseball figure in Georgia Southern history to have his number (20) retired (Nov. 8, 2003)... His 88 home runs still rank third on the all time NCAA Division I career list while his 640 total bases still stand sixth in collegiate baseball history... Earned All America honors as an outfielder all four seasons, including his freshman year in 1990 when he helped lead the Eagles to their greatest season in school history which was capped by a trip to the College World Series in Omaha... Is the Georgia Southern career leader in home runs (88), total bases (640) and runs batted in (257)... Also owns the school's single season mark for total bases with 203 in 1990. Was drafted by the California Angels in 1993 and enjoyed a quick rise through the minor leagues before making his big league debut in 1996... Has also played for the Toronto Blue Jays (2000), New York Yankees (2001), Texas Rangers (2002-03), Colorado Rockies (2004-05) and San Francisco Giants (2006)... Will perhaps always be remembered for catching President George W. Bush's emotional first pitch at Yankee Stadium prior to a World Series game against Arizona a little more than a month after the tragic terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.
