Jose Macias helped the Panamanian national team to a Gold Medal in the 1997 Central American Games. He was disliked by many internet Chicago Cubs fans who saw his playing time as favoritism by manager Dusty Baker. During the 2005 season he became the Cubs' everyday centerfielder while Jerry Hairston Jr. was on the disabled list.
After being released by the Cubs the following off-season, Macias signed with the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters in Japan. He hit .229 with 21 RBIs in 73 games in 2006 as the Fighters won the 2006 Japan Series.
