This Has to Be An Error Card

No way in hell did this guy ever play pro ball.

Alan Wiggins and LaMarr Hoytt picked him up South of the border after an all night bender in the Cactus League.

That's why he's laughing.

Boche is actually off to Mario's right telling him how to "look like a ballplayer."

Mario Ramirez
Shortstop, San Diego Padres
1986 Topps #262

Topps Fact (More evidence he wasn't a ball player - he has no "fact." Rather they tell us about Gaylord Perry): The oldest pitcher in Padres history was Gaylord Perry, 40 years, 11 months, 18 days old when he faced Giants 9-3-79.
GMT: Participated in a season-long contest with "teammate" Steve Garvey to see who could pull more tail. Won by 7.
