Red Sox fans saw Ramirez so briefly that they probably don't remember his only Fenway at-bat -- a three-pitch strikeout. Marlins radio broadcaster Glenn Geffner worked for the Red Sox at the time and said he doesn't remember.
''I don't remember anything at all about that at-bat,'' Geffner said. ``The Red Sox clinched the wild card that day and it was a crazy time. It's one of those moments that got lost in baseball history.''
But Ramirez remembers.
He was inserted as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning of a lopsided win against the New York Yankees on the final day of the regular season. With the outcome more or less settled, and with both clubs headed for the playoffs, the clubs emptied their benches.
Just who was the bright light reporter that thought that Geffie's non-memory was worth mentioning?
