Baseball Player
    (June 25, 1972- )
    First baseman for Toronto Blue Jays (1993-2004), Florida Marlins (2005) and New York Mets (2006- )
    Protests the U.S. testing weapons at Vieques, Puerto Rico
    He refuses to participate in baseball's 'God Bless America' seventh inning stretch.
    His stance stood out most at Yankee Stadium as 'God Bless America' is played at every game. Other stadiums play it only on Sundays and holidays.
    Yankee fans booed him and chanted 'USA! USA!' as he batted at the stadium (July 21, 2004).
    Although a free agent in 2005, his protest will probably keep George Steinbrenner's Yankees and other teams from bidding on him.
    He did not attend college.
    He protested 'God Bless America' simply by staying out of sight in the dug-out tunnel and did not call attention to his protest.
    He conceded 'If I make the last out of the seventh inning, I'll stand there. But I'd rather be in the dugout.'
    He exercises his first amendment rights even though it is not popular.
    He said: 'I am not pro-war; I'm anti-war. I'm for peace.'
    He said the U.S. invasion of Iraq is 'the stupidest war ever.'
    He said: 'It's a very terrible thing that happened on September 11. It's a terrible thing that happened in Afghanistan and Iraq.'
    He said: 'I just feel so sad for the families that lost relatives and loved ones in the war.'
    When asked for his reaction to being booed at Yankee Stadium, he respectfully replied: 'No, I will not talk about it. Is that OK? Thank you.'
    He earns nearly $20 million a season (2004).
    He hit 30 or more home runs every season (1997-2003).
    He donated $100,000 for youth sports on Vieques.
    He bats left handed and throws right handed.
