Nomar Garciaparra Fast Facts:
Uses his middle name, which is the reverse spelling of his father's name, Ramon. Equally distinctive was Nomar's fidgeting, glove-tugging between-pitch routine in the batter's box.
Earned the admiration of Red Sox fans by winning the 1997 AL Rookie of the Year Award while also gaining popularity for his energetic and workmanlike approach to the game.
Batted .372 in 2000, the highest average for a righthanded hitter since Joe DiMaggio hit .381 in 1939. Nomar's back-to-back AL batting titles (1999-2000) were also the first by a righthander since DiMaggio.
Awarded a 2004 World Series ring by his former Red Sox teammates despite being traded to the Cubs halfway through Boston's championship season.
Rescued two women who had fallen into Boston Harbor in October of 2005. Nomar and his uncle, Victor, reacted to screams they heard from Nomar's waterfront home.
Tied to soccer through more family members than just wife Mia Hamm---Nomar's uncle is legendary Mexican goalkeeper Javier "Zully" Ledesma (an interim coach for Chivas USA of MLS in 2005) and Ledesma's son Arturo plays in the Mexican League.
Joined ESPN as a baseball analyst in 2010.
