Biographical Information[edit]

Andy Fox played every position except pitcher and catcher during his 9-year career in the majors. He had 264 games at shortstop, 169 games at second base, 135 games at third base, 81 games in the outfield (playing all three outfield positions), and a few games at first base and as a DH.

He played in the 1996 World Series as a rookie with the New York Yankees.

He had over 300 at-bats in a season only twice, in 1998 with the Arizona Diamondbacks and in 2002 with the Florida Marlins. In 1998 he played all over the diamond, while in 2002 he was mostly a shortstop.

His last several major-league appearances came in 2004 with the Texas Rangers, whom he joined after being released by the Montreal Expos earlier that season. He had been selected by the Expos in the 2003 Rule V Draft the previous winter in what was a strange move, as veteran back-up infielders like Fox can usually be signed at no cost. The following season, he signed with the Minnesota Twins, and later that spring with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, but officially retired on April 28, 2005.

After retiring, Fox spent 2006 as manager of the Clinton LumberKings of the Midwest League. In spring 2007, he joined the Florida Marlins as the team's first base coach. Fox was a coach for the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx in 2010. He was the Boston Red Sox minor league field director in 2011.
