The Big Cat

One of the great ballplayers who got the Colorado Rockies Baseball Franchise off the ground, Andres Galarraga was a big fan favorite in Denver. "The Big Cat" was beloved by all, especially Spanish-speaking fans.

He has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and has released a Motivational Video about his battle.

Newsday reports that he has signed with the Mets at 43 and is one HR away from 400.

Galarraga will be a bit player on the Mets, but he'll be a good influence on the team. (No Bobby Bonilla he.) And, man, he used to be one helluva ballplayer.
