Leo Gomez, 1992 Upper Deck #161

Congratulations to Leo Gomez, who was named the manager of the Aberdeen IronBirds yesterday. The IronBirds, of course, are Baltimore's short-season low-A affiliate in the New York-Penn League. The club is owned by the Ripkens and briefly employed yours truly as an unpaid marketing intern (and eventually a temporary "consultant") in the fall of 2004. Other former Orioles who have managed the IronBirds include Don Buford and Andy Etchebarren. No word on whether Leo will bring those sweet Rec Specs to Ripken Stadium with him.

I just got home from a flea market where a guy had a whole bunch of Leo Gomez autographs.
