On June 26, 1998, playing for the Houston Astros in an interleague game against the Cleveland Indians, Ricky Gutierrez was involved in a 20-pitch at-bat against Bartolo Colon before striking out swinging. It was the longest at-bat ever recorded until Brandon Belt was retired on the 21st pitch thrown by Jaime Barria on April 22, 2018.
In his final major league season, in 2004, he was acquired by the Boston Red Sox from the New York Mets in late July and spent the last two months with the BoSox as a back-up infielder, hitting .275 in 21 games. He was thus a member of the team that broke the "Curse of the Bambino" by winning the 2004 World Series, even though he did not appear in postseason play.
Gutierrez was a coach for Daytona Tortugas in 2017 and managed the same team in 2018-2019. He was scheduled to be the manager of the Chattanooga Lookouts in 2020 before the season was cancelled due to Covid-19.
