Baseball career

In the summer of 1988, the Texas Rangers, New York Mets, Montreal Expos, Cincinnati Reds and Toronto Blue Jays all wanted to sign Carlos. He chose the Toronto Blue Jays. During the 1993 season, he broke in to the major leagues with the Blue Jays. Originally a catcher, he switched to first baseman and became one of the most productive sluggers in the Major Leagues. A two-time All Star, in 2000 and 2003, Delgado holds several Blue Jays single season and career records. He won the Hank Aaron and The Sporting News' Player of the Year awards in 2000, and the Silver Slugger Award in 1999, 2000, and 2003.

On November 23, 2005, the Mets traded Mike Jacobs, Yusmeiro Petit and Grant Psomas to the Marlins for Delgado and $7 million.

Social activism

Like his hero, Roberto Clemente, Delgado is a well-known humanitarian and peace activist and has been open about his political beliefs. As part of the Navy-Vieques protests, Delgado was actively opposed to the use of the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico as a bombing target practice facility by the United States Department of Defense, until bombing was halted in 2003. He is also against the occupation of Iraq. In the 2004 season, Delgado protested the war by silently staying in the dugout during the playing of God Bless America during the Seventh inning stretch. Delgado does not make a public show of his beliefs and even his teammates were not aware of his views until a story was published in July 2004 in the Toronto Star. Delgado was quoted as saying "It’s a very terrible thing that happened on September 11. It's (also) a terrible thing that happened in Afghanistan and Iraq, ... I just feel so sad for the families that lost relatives and loved ones in the war. But I think it's the stupidest war ever." The story was the subject of a media frenzy, mostly in New York, where on July 21, 2004, as was anticipated, Delgado was booed for his passive protest during a game at Yankee Stadium [1]. Angry New York fans booed him and, when Delgado lined out in the bottom of the seventh inning, fans chanted "USA, USA" even though Delgado, like most Puerto Ricans, is an U.S. citizen but Delgado supports the Puerto Rican independence movement. Delgado had explained that the playing of God Bless America had come to be equated with a war in which he didn't believe. In a New York Times interview, Delgado said this is what he believed in, and "It takes a man to stand up for what he believes."
