Biographical Information[edit]

After Manny Aybar's friend Jose Oliva died in a tragic car accident, Manny had "123" written on his St. Louis Cardinals cap, as this had been Jose's number in winter ball. San Diego Padres manager Bruce Bochy promptly had the umpires force Aybar to remove his cap as it violated the uniform codes. Source: Mendoza's Heroes by Al Pepper He pitched in the majors for parts of eight seasons, logging 67 of his career 210 appearances (and his three career saves) with the Cards in 1999. He later served as pitching coach with the DSL Mets 1 in 2015.
