#206 Domingo Ramos
Why this card is awesome: Because I love the fact that they correctly listed his BA and SLG as undefined in 1978 with the Yankees, since he didn't get at-bats. In college, I had a stupid roommate who asked the trivia question "When is the only time a pitcher can throw a no-hitter and the batting averages of the other team don't change?" She stupidly insisted that the answer was opening day, since all batting averages are "zero" to start with, and end at zero after the game. That's not true, of course. I tried to explain to her that the true answer was on the second day of the season, and only if there was also a no-hitter on opening day. Then, the averages really are zero going into the second game. But she was too dumb to get it.
Cool stat: Ramos has one career walk-off plate appearance, coming in this game.
