Player Profile: Bobby Ayala

I have thirteen cards of Bobby Ayala. This one is from 1995 Pinnacle.

Playing career: Bobby Ayala had an eight-year major league career, mostly with Seattle. He was the Mariners closer in 1994 and 1995 but quickly became reviled by Mariner fans due to generally poor performance, bottoming out at a 1-10 record, all in relief, with a 7.29 ERA in 1998.

My memories: I was surprised to read how bad he had been. To me all members of the 1995 Mariners seemed real big and scary.

Where he is now: Anyone know where Bobby Ayala is now?

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Bobby Ay, ahead of Bobby Ayers, an MMA fighter. There do not appear to be any other prominent Bobby Ayalas.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Erick Aybar.
