Nomar Garciaparra is a former Major League Baseball player and current SportsNet LA analyst.
Garciaparra started his baseball career, at Georgia Tech, where he helped the Yellow Jackets reach the College World Series title game in 1994, was an Atlantic Coast Conference All-Star, and a first team All-American twice in 1993–94.
Following his successful career at Georgia State, Garciaparra was a first round draft pick of the Red Sox. After playing parts of nine seasons as an All-Star shortstop for the Boston Red Sox, he played third base and first base for the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, the Oakland Athletics, and he was a member of the 1992 American Olympic Baseball team. He is one of 13 players in Major League history to hit two grand slams during a single game, and the only player to achieve the feat at his home stadium.
Garciaparra is a six-time All-Star (1997, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2006), and was the AL Rookie of the Year and AL Silver Slugger Award winner at shortstop in 1997. Known for his ability to hit for average, Garciaparra is a lifetime .313 hitter. He had the highest single-season batting average by a right handed batter in the post-war era, batting .372 in 2000, and was the first right handed batter to win the AL Batting Title in consecutive seasons since Joe DiMaggio, when he accomplished the feat in 1999 and 2000.
After Garciaparra's retirement in 2010, he took a position at ESPN, contributing analysis for the program Baseball Tonight and Wednesday Night Baseball telecasts. He is also one of the lead analysts on ESPN's coverage of the College World Series. Garciaparra began serving as a pre-and-post-game analyst for the Dodgers' telecasts on SportsNet LA in 2013.
