Career Highlights

On September 25, 2003, in a game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Delgado became only the fifth American League player and 15th major leaguer to hit four home runs in one game. He hit a three-run homer in the first inning, then led off the fourth, sixth and eighth innings with solo shots.

Delgado became a free agent following the 2004 season and was pursued by the Baltimore Orioles, Florida Marlins, New York Mets, and Texas Rangers. On January 25, 2005, he finally chose the Marlins, signing a four-year contract worth a reported $52 million. His transition to the National League was very successful, hitting for a .301 batting average, .399 on base percentage, with 33 home runs and 115 runs batted in.

On November 23, 2005, the Mets, one of the teams which had pursued Delgado the previous off-season, struck a trade with Florida to send Mike Jacobs and two minor leaguers to the Marlins for Delgado and $7 million. The deal was part of a Marlins "market correction".

Through the 2005 season, in 13 years of major league service, Delgado had a career .284 batting average, and a .393 on-base percentage with 369 home runs and 1,173 runs batted in in 1,567 games.

Carlos Delgado was one of the first Puerto Rican players to agree to play for Puerto Rico in the MLB World Baseball Classic, representing the island. In addition to Delgado, the team features fellow Puerto Ricans Ivan Rodriguez, Sandy Alomar, Jr. as catchers, Carlos Beltran, Bernie Williams, Jose Cruz Jr. and Luis Matos as outfielders, Mike Lowell, Jose Vidro, Felipe Lopez, Alex Cintron and Carlos Baerga as infielders, and pitchers Javier Vazquez, Joel Pineiro, J.C. Romero and Kiko Calero amongst others, in a team managed by St. Louis Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo.
