Hiram made his major league debut on my 43rd birthday, September 13, 2000 with the Dodgers against the Diamondbacks.
Hiram was drafted by the Expos' in the first round of the 1994 draft. In 1998 he was traded with Mark Grudzielanek and Carlos Perez for Peter Bergeron, Wilton Guerrero, Ted Lily and Johnathan Tucker. He made his debut in 2000 with the Dodgers. In 2002 he was traded to the Tigers for Jason Frasor. In 2004, 2006 and 2007 he signed as a free agent with the Oakland A's. In May of 2007 he was selected over the waiver wire from the A's by the Padres and played in 27 games. He had 63 at bats with 15 hits, 1 home run and hit .205. He was released by the Padres in July of 2007, and I mailed this to him and he sent it back.
