Career

McCarty was drafted by the Twins in the 1st round (3rd overall) of the 1991 Major League Baseball Draft.[1] In an eleven-season career, he was a .242 hitter with 36 home runs and 175 RBI in 630 games.

A utility player in the purest sense, McCarty was a defensive first baseman and outfielder who occasionally was called upon to pitch. His most productive season came in 2000 for the Royals, when he posted career-highs in batting average (.278), home runs (12), RBI (68), runs (34), hits (75), doubles (14) and games played (103).

McCarty, who was released by the Boston Red Sox in May 2005, refused a minor league assignment.[2] He retired and was a Red Sox analyst on NESN from July 1, 2005 until the end of the 2008 season.[3]

Pitching

McCarty made three pitching appearances for the Red Sox in 2004. The first was during the April 9 home opener. The second was in the June 12 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in which he struck out Jayson Werth and finally, in the final game of the season, McCarty went 2 scoreless innings against the Baltimore Orioles in which he struck out Rafael Palmeiro.

Personal life

Born in Houston, Texas, McCarty graduated from Sharpstown High School in 1988[4] before attending Stanford University. He lives in Piedmont, California with his wife, Monica, and their two children.
