Esix was a speedster but hit for a low average. Billy Hamilton anyone? He started off in the Cards’ system at Low-A New Jersey Cardinals where he hit .233 and stole 42 bases in 58 games. In 1999 Esix was with the Single-A Peoria Chiefs and High A-Potomac Cannons where he hit under .200 and stole 64 bases in 126 games. Esix had his best year in 2000 when he was at
Potomac and stole 109 bases and hit
.235. 2001 was his final year in the Redbird system where he played for Double
A-New Haven where he stole 64 bases and hit .233 in 133 games.
The Cardinals waived him November 2001 and he was claimed by the Mets. With the Mets he made his Big League debut on September 21, against the Expos, he got his first major league hit, a single, and also ended the game with a three-run walk-off home run. Back to the Minors he would go and not get back up to the Big Club until 2004 where he played in one game. Esix was signed to a Minor League contract by the Braves November 2004 but never made it to the Majors. He was then signed by the Orioles January 2006 but released May 21st, 2006.
I haven’t been able to find out what ever happened to him after he was released. Here is are some of Esix’s cards as a Redbird .hey aren't inexpensive on the 'bay. Even his autos aren't cheap. I am pretty sure I will find one at the next card show in the $1 bins. He even has a relic card from his Mets days.
