Happy Reds birthday, Manny Sarmiento!


February 2, 1956

According to a 1982 article in the Beaver County (PA) Times, Manny Sarmiento had a nervous breakdown in 1977. I can’t pinpoint when this breakdown occurred, or if it was even during the baseball season, as he pitched 25 games for the AA Indianapolis Indians before coming to the Reds in July, and he appears to have pitched consistently through the end of the year.
