Player Profile: Luis Aguayo

I have 21 cards of Luis Aguayo. This one is from 1989 Donruss.

Playing career: Luis Aguayo played eight seasons as a backup infielder for the Phillies, never appearing in more than 94 games or having more than 209 at bats in a season. He finished his career with brief appearances with the Yankees and Indians.

My memories: I remember him coming over to the Yankees, but like most mid-season acquisitions in the late eighties, he made little positive impact.

Where he is now: Manager of the Palm Beach Cardinals in the Florida State League. In his seven previous seasons as a minor league manager his teams have never finished above fifth place.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type in Luis Ag, between photographer Luis Aguirre and Luis Aguilar Biografia, referring to a biography of the Mexican actor. Another prominent Luis Aguayo is a neurophysiology professor in Chile.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Chris Aguila.

  1. Hey, we just saw him last month on vacation, saw the PB Cards play the Tampa Yankees. Got a good shot of a balding Aguayo having a laugh with Tampa manager Luis Sojo, or Sojo sharing a laugh with him.
