1993 Studio Ruben Sierra

Hobbies are singing and show horses (Paso Finos): Sierra has recorded albums of salsa music both during and after his career. In 2011 one of his horses ran in the Kentucky Derby.
Favorite sports announcer is Rex Barney: An offbeat choice – Barney was the PA announcer for the Baltimore Orioles, a team Sierra never played for.
Favorite player as a kid was Roberto Clemente: Sierra was widely considered the best Puerto Rican ballplayer since Clemente, a difficult legacy to live up to.
Might have been a singer if he hadn’t been an athlete: He did become a singer, before his career was even over. His own songs were his walk-up music as a Yankee.
Pet peeve is two-faced people: No one likes those.
Where he is now: Singing and horses.
