Luis Alicea

1989 Topps

Alicea spent 13 years in the majors. He hit .260 with 47 home runs while playing for the St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, Anaheim Angels, Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals between 1988-2002. Alicea primarily played second base and was a starter for most of his career. He had his best year while with Texas in 2000 when he hit a career-best .294 while also setting career highs in RBIs (63) and runs (85).

Alicea got his first big-league hit in his first big-league game on April 23, 1988, at Busch Stadium. He started at second base for the Cardinals and ripped a triple to right field off New York Met Roger McDowell in the bottom of the sixth inning. He came in to score on Curt Ford’s subsequent sacrifice fly. The Mets, however, won the game 12-9.

Alicea was the first base coach for the 2007 Red Sox team that won the World Series.
