Ramp Champ #16: Tony Conigliaro

Tony Conigliaro was an outfielder who played in 37 games for the Pawtucket Red Sox in 1975. He was 30 years old.

Conigliaro went 25-37 that season with three home runs and 12 RBI.

He was hit by a pitch twice.

Two things:
1. Conigliaro's last games were in Pawtucket. He went down there in June and retired in August. "He was dropping easy fly balls in the outfield," said teammate Buddy Hunter.
2. Evidently, Conigliaro and Pawtucket alumnus Nomar G. have several things in common.

Tony Conigliaro's mural is in the upper portion of the home plate tower.
