 Biographical Information
Michael Barrett once caught a baserunner (Morgan Ensberg) stealing second without throwing the ball. Ensberg had broken for second on a pitch-out and then froze. Barrett began running towards Ensberg, who tried to return to first but could not beat the catcher there, resulting in one of the oddest caught stealing plays in history.
Barrett hit .372 for the US in the 1994 World Junior Championship to help them win Bronze. He was named to the All-Tournament Team at third base.
On May 20, 2006, Michael was involved in an on-field altercation with A.J. Pierzynski. After a collision at the plate, Barrett punched Pierzynski in the face. A bench-clearing brawl ensued, resulting in four ejections. Barrett received a ten-game suspension. On September 2 of that same season, Barrett was injured when a foul ball hit his groin which in turn caused bleeding in his scrotum. He underwent emergency surgery the same afternoon.
