"The Nashua Pride announced Tuesday that the professional baseball club has signed former Red Sox star setup man, Rich Garces, nicknamed 'El Guapo.'

"Garces played for the Minnesota Twins (1990, 1993), Chicago Cubs (1995), Florida Marlins (1995) and the Boston Red Sox (1996-2002). El Guapo was voted second most beloved Red Sox reliever since 1967 in a recent Boston Dirt Dogs poll on

" 'Signing Rich to pitch this season is really fun for the fans in Nashua,' said Pride manager Butch Hobson. 'He has pitched great in Venezuela this winter and we will look for him to be a leader both in the bullpen and in the community.'

“ 'I am excited to move back to New England and can’t wait to pitch for Butch and help Nashua win a championship,' commented Garces." -- 2.20.07, Nashua Pride press release
