Carlos Delgado

Carlos Juan Delgado Hernández (born June 25, 1972) is a Major League Baseball first baseman for the New York Mets
Delgado was born in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. During the 1993 season, he broke in to the major leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays. Originally a catcher, he switched to first baseman and became one of the most productive sluggers in the major leagues. A two-time All Star, in 2000 and 2003, Delgado holds several Blue Jays single season and career records. He won the Hank Aaron and The Sporting News' Player of the Year awards in 2000, and the Silver Slugger Award in 1999, 2000, and 2003. Delgado is the fourth player in major league history to hit at least 30 home runs in 10 consecutive seasons, and amassed 100 RBI or more in seven of his ten full seasons.
On September 25, 2003, in a game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Delgado became the fifth American League player and 15th major leaguer to hit four home runs in one game. He hit a three-run home run in the first inning, then led off the fourth, sixth and eighth innings with solo shots. He was named AL Player of the Week (September 30, 2003). He was named again on September 7, 2004.
Delgado became a free agent following the 2004 season and was pursued by the Baltimore Orioles, Florida Marlins, New York Mets, Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers. On January 25, 2005, he chose the Marlins, signing a four-year contract worth a reported $52 million. He successfully transitioned to the National League, hitting for a .301 batting average, .399 on-base percentage, with 33 home runs and 115 RBI in 2005.
On November 23, 2005, the Mets traded Mike Jacobs and two minor leaguers to the Marlins for Delgado and $7 million. The deal was part of the Marlins' "market correction" where they were unloading some of the higher paid players. Delgado responded as the feared cleanup hitter for the Mets, hitting 38 home runs and driving in 114 runs. Hitting between fellow Puerto Rican Carlos Beltran and star thirdbaseman David Wright, the Mets had the best record in the National League in 2006, but lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS, 4-3.
Through the 2006 season, in 14 years of major league service, Delgado has a career .282 batting average, and a .390 on-base percentage with 407 home runs and 1,287 RBI in 1,711 games.
