While adapting to the language was difficult, playing baseball made Garcia’s transition to America much easier.

“I started playing baseball as soon as I got here,” Garcia said. “Baseball was the key to my success. I didn’t need to speak English to play baseball. It’s like math … it’s the same in America or Cuba or China or Japan. It was like a bridge that helped me adapt to this country.”

“He’s become very valuable because he throws a lot of strikes,” Coach John McCormack said. “I always tell these guys don’t look at how many innings you pitch or how many appearances you have – look at when they occur. His have always occurred in good spots against for the most part good teams.”
