I learned quite a bit about Mr. Ramppen in trying to find his contact info. It turns out he's been the right-hand man of longtime big league manager Bobby Valentine for the past couple of decades. He has managed Valentine's restaurant, worked as an instructor at his baseball school, and most recently served as bench coach for the Japanese league team Bobby V managed. Like most of the responses from this set, he included a brief letter. It's another awesome return for my favorite project!
