Macho Man

Here's a name Tribe fans can remember and laugh at...

Ernie "Macho" Camacho

Pitcher, Cleveland Indians
1986 Topps #509
1987 Topps #353
1987 Donruss #350

jdbaseball at MLBlog's "The Game" retells some Camacho tales from a 1995 Sporting News article by Sheldon Ocker:
Mesa is the most effective relief pitcher the Indians have had, but he is not the most memorable in my 15 seasons covering, the team. That distinction belongs to Ernie Camacho, who saved games for the Indians from 1983 through '87.
