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. He won't be playing first during the 1999 season, but I look forward to the day he's back in 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!
