Geovany Soto Biography
2008 NL Rookie of the Year Geovany Soto was born January 20, 1983 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Selected by the Chicago Cubs 318th overall in the 11th round of the 2001 amateur draft, he made his major league debut on September 23, 2005, against the Houston Astros.
As a rookie catcher, Soto called a no-hitter game from behind the plate to pitcher Carlos Zambrano in a game against the Houston Astros on September 14, 2008. Played at Miller Park in Milwaukee due to Hurricane Ike moving through Houston, this was the first no-hitter in major league history pitched at a neutral site.
After the 2008 season, Soto was honored with The Sporting News Rookie of the Year Award and the Major League Baseball Rookie of the Year Award for the National League. Soto is the first Cubs' backstop to play for multiple Cub playoff teams since Gabby Hartnett, and is the first to start playoff games in consecutive years since Johnny Kling. Soto also won the Pedrn Zorrilla Award, receiving unanimous support during the votation process. Orlando Cepeda was contacted to present the award, arriving to Puerto Rico for the ceremony.
