High School in 1995 with whom he captained his baseball team and also lettered in basketball. A Gonzaga University alum, he made his debut with the Cardinals on June 19, 2003, and had one of the best debut months in Major League Baseball history hitting .460. With the Cardinals he played in 88 games from 2003-04 hitting .272 with four home runs, five triples, 13 doubles and 30 RBI.
Hart had two stints with Memphis from 2005-06, in 2005 he hit .269 with nine home runs, 33 doubles, 47 RBI and 11 steals in 133 games.
