Biographical information[edit]

Alberto Garcia was a minor league baseball infielder who played in the Chicago Cubs organization from 2002 to 2007. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2001.

In 2002, Garcia played for the DSL Cubs, hitting .314 with 7 HR and 47 RBI. He played for the AZL Cubs and Boise Hawks in 2003, hitting a combined .313 with 37 RBI in 53 games. He appeared in only five games for the Hawks.

Garcia spent the 2004 season with the Lansing Lugnuts, hitting .304/.321/.467 in 227 at-bats, playing primarily third base.
