A five-tool outfielder, the former first-round choice of the Yankees was selected by the Marlins in the 1992 expansion draft. He played for the Marlins and Mets before he was traded after the 1997 season to Houston for reliever John Hudek.

In two division-winning seasons with the Astros, the switch-hitter batted .310 with 40 homers, 41 steals and 184 RBIs. In the post-season, though, he hit .143 in two losing playoff series.

Traded to Boston before the 2000 season for Adam Everett (no relation), Carl Everett found success and drama with the Red Sox during two tumultuous seasons then moved onto the Rangers, the Expos, the White Sox and the Mariners until he retired after 2006.

While with Chicago, Everett won a Worlds Championship batting .444 against the Astros in the 2005 World Series.
