 Biographical Information
He was the umpire in right field at Yankee Stadium during Game 1 of the 1996 ALCS when 12-year-old Jeffrey Maier reached over the railing and defelcted a fly ball off the bat of Derek Jeter into the stands; Garcia called the play a home run, although most observers think that fan interference should have been called.
He is the father-in-law of umpire Vic Carapazza.
