From My Brother - 1986 Donruss Andres Galarraga RC
Galarraga (b. 1961) played in the majors from 1985 to 1998 and 2000 to 2004 for the Expos, Cardinals, Rockies, Braves, Rangers, Giants and Angels. He missed the 1999 season while he battled cancer. In his career, he had 2,333 hits, 399 home runs and a .288 lifetime batting average. He was the 1993 NL batting champion when he hit .370 for the Rockies. He was an All Star 5 times in his career and won 2 Gold Glove and one Silver Slugger awards. He appeared on the 2004 Hall of Fame ballot but got only 4.1% of the vote. I don't think he ever gets in, but he was still a heck of a player.
I definitely have to thank my brother for this RC of The Big Cat. I always liked Galarraga. He won a lot of Sega baseball games for me. I played a season on one of the games as the Rockies and I think he hit over 100 home runs for me.
