Joey Cora was born May 14, 1965 in Caguas, Puerto Rico and is a former Major League Baseball player known as "The Rooster" with an 11 year career in the MLB spanning the years 1987 and 1989-1998. He played for the San Diego Padres of the National League and the Chicago White Sox, Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians of the American League. He played second base, shortstop, third base and also served as designated hitter. He debuted in the Major Leagues on April 6, 1987, as a 21 year old rookie. After spending parts of three seasons with the Padres, he was traded to the Chicago White Sox in 1991, where Cora would spend the next four seasons. On April 6, 1995, he signed with the Seattle Mariners, where he would enjoy his most productive seasons at bat. His 24-game hitting streak was a Mariners record (later broken by Ichiro Suzuki), and still stands as the longest streak for American League switch-hitters. In 1997, he was elected to the American League All-Star team and went on to hit .300 with 11 home runs and 54 RBI. Cora, who was nicknamed "Little Joey," was one of the most popular Mariners during his time with the team, and many fans admired the second baseman for his hustle, grit, and good nature. He also endeared himself to the fans when the Mariners' storied 1995 season was ended in game six of the 1995 American League Championship Series by the Cleveland Indians. Cora, like thousands of fans in the Kingdome that day, broke down and wept. The footage of him weeping while the Mariners' then-rookie Alex Rodriguez draped his arm across Cora's shoulder and consoled him was widely replayed throughout the Seattle area. This event was memorialized the following year with a very humorous promotional ad. The sensitivity and emotion Cora displayed made him particularly popular with young women in the Pacific Northwest, who would often hold signs at Mariners' home games, saying "Marry me, Joey!" Cora spent most of the 1998 as a Mariner, but with the team falling out of contention, he was dealt to the Cleveland Indians in exchange for David Bell, where he barely played, due to injuries. He signed a free-agent contract with the Toronto Blue Jays during the off-season, but retired without playing a game.
