Augie Ojeda

Augie Ojeda: When the 5-foot-8 infielder doubled for his first major league hit in June 2000, the crowd at Wrigley Field stood and chanted "Augie, Augie ..." "It felt so great, so great," Ojeda said. "Words can't describe it." In four years with the Cubs, Ojeda never topped his rookie average of .221. He was waived and later played for the Twins and D'backs.Phil Velasquez, Chicago Tribune
