Dodgers podcast la dodgers mlb jersey lids : Vicente Romo, 1st Mexican-born pitcher in team history
We close out the week Vineyard Vines on the Leading Off with True Blue LA podcast with another Dodgers rewind, looking back at Vicente Romo, who pitchedAddison Russell for the Dodgers in two seasons, 14 years apart.
This week’s look back is thanks to Craig Minami, whose question on a recent The Lineup podcast included reference to Romo, suggesting heChristian Yelich’d be a good rewind candidate. Craig was right!
The Dodgers took Romo in the Rule 5 Draft from Cleveland in December 1967, and he pitched one game for them in 1968 before getting sent back to the American League.
Romo earned the nickname “Huevo,” which I actually forgot to mention on the podcast itself, but his pitching career went well beyond the major leagues.

Romo was the second Mexican-born player for the Dodgers, and first pitcher. He returned to them during the 1982 season and pitched pretty well at age 39, but his season ended early with a knee injury in July, ending the major league portion of his career.
Romo was inducted into the Mexican Baseball la dodgers mlb jersey patch bloom blue 59fifty cap Hall of Fame in 1992.
