In five seasons in their farm system, he compiled a .281 batting average, 98 home runs, and 375 RBIs. His first career home run came off of Osvaldo Fernández at Candlestick Park in 1997.
Karim García’s Career
García represented his native country, Mexico, as an outfielder on the Mexico national baseball team for the 2006, 2009, and 2013 World Baseball Classic tournaments.
- Detroit Tigers
Following just one season in Arizona, García was traded to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for Luis Gonzalez and cash consideration. On May 28, 1999, Garcia became the 34th player in the history of Major League Baseball to hit a home run over the Tiger Stadium roof in right field, however, he lasted just one full season in Detroit. In June 2000, he was sent to the Baltimore Orioles as part of a conditional deal but was released by Baltimore after one season with the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings.
- Cleveland Indians
Garcia signed with the Cleveland Indians for the 2001 season and clubbed 31 home runs for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons. He joined the Indians that September and batted .311 with five home runs in just 45 at-bats.
The Indians released García during Spring training 2002. He joined the New York Yankees shortly afterward only to be released by the Yankees that July and rejoin the Indians. In 51 games for the Tribe, García managed to put up his most impressive stats to date: sixteen home runs, 52 RBIs, and a .299 batting average.
García’s 2002 performance earned him a job as Cleveland’s 2003 opening day right fielder, however, a .194 batting average and sloppy play in the outfield caused him to lose his starting job to Jody Gerut by the beginning of May. Shortly afterward, his contract was purchased by the Yankees.
- New York Yankees
García’s numbers improved dramatically upon joining the Yankees, as he batted .305 in 52 games. He also displayed a far steadier glove, committing just two errors.
He is likely best remembered for two incidents in the 2003 American League Championship Series at Fenway Park against the rival Boston Red Sox. Following a Hideki Matsui double that gave the Yankees a 4-2 lead in game three, García was plunked with a Pedro Martínez pitch thrown behind his head. A verbal altercation with Martínez caused benches to empty, and interrupted play.
He was involved in a famous confrontation with Pedro Martinez in the 2003 ALCS when Martinez threw a pitch near Garcia’s head.
