Three+ years. That is just plain crazy to me. Makes you wonder how much mail he gets, or maybe he is just very busy in retirement! Nice that anyone still returns TTM these days. I see more and more steam picking up for private TTM paid signings, especially with covid limited appearances and such.

Cool, I see his tenure with the Yanks was a single defensive inning at SS in 1978. No offensive appearance.

Anytime that I see Domingo Ramos, I remember how he was briefly a part of the Rangers organization and only because the owner made a huge trade with the Yankees and got the name wrong. The Rangers wanted Damaso Garcia, who went on to have a much better career, but we got Domingo Ramos instead

A good portion of Corbett’s income came from the trades in which he yielded that good young talent. Righetti, for example, went to the Yankees in a 10-player trade that enriched the Rangers by $400,000. The Corbett staff had argued against it, telling the owner to make the trade only if New York also included a young infielder named Damaso Garcia, now with Toronto. Corbett said he would insist on Garcia.

The deal was soon consummated, but instead of Garcia, the Rangers got Domingo Ramos. The staff was infuriated.

“Hell’s bells,” Corbett said. “All those Latin names sound alike.”
