Former Cubs player, White Sox minor-league manager Adrian Garrett dies at 78

Adrian Garrett, who spent eight seasons in the major leagues and then went on to a coaching career, has died. He was 78.

Garrett died Thursday of pneumonia at Ascension Seton Hays Hospital in Kyle, Texas, New York Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said Friday. Adrian Garrett’s younger brother, Wayne, was the third baseman on the 1969 World Series champion Mets.

A catcher and an outfielder, Adrian Garrett was born in Brooksville, Florida, and is a graduate of Sarasota High School. He signed with the Milwaukee Braves in 1961 and made his debut with the Atlanta Braves on April 13, 1966.

He was 0 for 3 in four games for the Braves that year and did not return to the big leagues until 1970 with the Cubs. He played for the Cubs through 1973 and again in 1975 and also for Oakland (1971-72) and the California Angels (1975-76). He hit .185 with 11 homers and 37 RBIs in 163 games.

Garrett spent 1977-79 with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp of Japan’s Central League, winning a Japan Series title in his final season.
