Biographical Information[edit]

Though not taken until the 27th round, Vazquez was actually drafted 8 spots ahead of Matt Thornton, a high school left hander that would go on to be a 1st round draft pick three years later. While batting 9th for the 2007 Texas Rangers, on August 22, 2007, Ramón Vázquez had a big day in the first game ever in which an American League team scored 30 runs. He homered twice and drove in seven runs. With his ninth-inning home run, he became the first major leaguer since the 19th century to score his team's 30th run of a game.

Vázquez played with the Puerto Rican national team in the 2009 World Baseball Classic

Vazquez became a coach with the Lancaster JetHawks in 2014-2015. He then moved into the manager's role with the same team in 2016. In 2017, he was named infield coach with the San Diego Padres.
