Biographical Information[edit]

Mike Ramsey played seven years in the majors, mostly for the St. Louis Cardinals. His most appearances were in 1982, and he was in three games in the 1982 World Series. A middle infielder, he played 155 regular-season games at second, 137 games at shortstop and 50 games at third base. He completed his career by playing part of a season with the Montreal Expos in 1984 and a few games with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1985.

Ramsey was a coach for the Edmonton Trappers in 1987 and Peoria Chiefs in 1990. He also managed for several seasons - his 1998 Mobile BayBears won the league championship. One of his players was the young Gary Matthews.

He is not to be confused with another player of the same name, Mike Ramsey, who was with the Dodgers in 1987, only two years after Mike had played with them; casual fans may not have recognized that these were two discrete players.
