Benny Ayala started his major league career with a bang, hitting a home run in his first major league at bat. He totaled 38 home runs in his ten year career, and hit .429 in two World Series with the Orioles. Fans interested in his autograph or those of other Puerto Rican former major leaguers should check out this post at Paul's Random Stuff. I wrote to him and he kindly responded with his thoughts on baseball cards.
"I have favorite cards - the 83 Orioles, the 79 Orioles and the 74 NYM; and all of the ex major league players from P.R.
I don't collect baseball cards but I have the opportunity many times to get them signed by my teammates."
Pablo Torrealba, 1979 Topps
