Spotted: Karim Garcia Getting Walked Intentionally


It’s not immediately clear to the author what set of circumstances might have led to the six intentional walks recorded by Karim Garcia during his 10-year major-league career. Whatever circumstances they were, however, they’ve been resolved since 2004 at the very latest — i.e. the last time Garcia appeared in a major-league game.

Yet, what this grainy daguerreotype reveals is, in fact, Karim Garcia receiving a base on balls in the most intentional of fashions — specifically, from Zack Segovia of Puerto Rican club Caguas in what, this very second, has become a bit of a runaway victory for Mexico’s Yaquis de Obreg√≥n (box).
