Welcome to Andrea's Andres Galarraga Page!
I will be the first to admit that I wasn't too pleased when the Braves
signed Galarraga this year. I thought all of the usual arguments--he's
too old, he can't hit outside Coors Field, etc. But I will also be the
first to admit that I'm now a huge fan of the Big Cat. I'm glad to say I
was wrong. His huge bat and his great defense at first base is a
welcome addition to the Braves' lineup.
This is my little tribute to Galarraga. If you've visited my other Braves
pages, you know the drill. Here is the Big Cat's biography, a great
picture, and links to some great Galarraga sites as well as a link to my
collection of pictures. Enjoy!
