Player profile: Joe Ausanio

I have four cards of Joe Ausanio. This one is from 1995 Fleer.

Playing career: Long-time minor-leaguer Joe Ausanio got some chances to pitch in the major leagues with the Yankees in 1994 and 1995, going 4-1 with a save in 41 games.

My memories: Ausanio was a fan favorite because of his out-of-nowhere story and New York State background.

Where he is now: He is the head softball coach at Marist College and the Director of Baseball Communications for the Hudson ValleyRenegades.

Interesting stories: He shared his baseball card stories with me back in 2009.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Joe Au, between Joe Augustine Baseball, referring to a former Royals minor leaguer now pitching in the independent leagues, and Joe Auto Wreckers, referring to an auto business in Mount Vernon, NY. Another prominent Joe Ausanio is a financial advisor at JP Morgan Chase.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brad Ausmus.
