Chicago Cubs: Former All-Star Tony Womack was a Cub in 2003 and 2006

Unlike LaRussa, former utility man Tony Womack had a long playing career. The former infielder and outfielder played 13 years in the majors and batted .273/.317/.356 with 36 home runs, 363 stolen bases and recorded 1,353 hits. He was an All-Star in 1997 when he played in Pittsburgh.

His first stop in Chicago was in 2003 when he came over from the Rockies in mid-August during their run to the playoffs. In the 21 games he played he with the Cubs hit .235/.250/.314 and stole two bases. He did not appear in the 2003 playoffs. After bouncing around the next few years with the Cardinals, Yankees and Reds, he returned to the Cubs in 2006 when he signed in May of that year. He only appeared in 19 games hitting .280/.333/.360 before being released in June, which would end his MLB career.

Womack was not a player one would think of as a member of the division winning 2003 Cubs. He was an excellent player for many years but was pretty much past his prime by the time he was a Cub.
