    Manny Sarmiento

    I have attended several of the past "Big Red Machine" autograph reunion shows and while every player and coach from the 1975 and 1976 team were there, one notable person missing was Manny Sarmiento. There were alot of rumors going around that he was dead or in prison but does anyone know what really happened to him?? One of the workers for CEI Sports told me they had tried to locate him but had no luck finding him. My autographed team pic of the 1976 team doesnt look as complete with no autograph over Manny's pic.

    Someone at RedsFest told me that he has a warrant for his arrest in the US because he is some major drug dealer. If he shows his face in the US he will be arrested. They told me where he lived but I can't remember where it was.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    I went to a pair of them. The first time they said he was in Argentina and they weren't able to get a hold of him down there. The second one he was scheduled to appear, but when I got there they said his plane had been delayed and he was unable to make it.

    So it sounds like unless I wanna go down to the Caribbean for a pharmaceutical convention, I am not going to get Manny to autograph my team photo any time soon.
