And another card for the reference book is this insert I didn't have.
Many baseball cards have a few sentences on the back highlighting something about the player. I guess these little paragraphs are probably difficult to write, not because it's hard to think of something to say about a player but because there is so much that could be said. Sometimes these read like they were plucked from a bucket of random stats for each player but a few of these Gypsy Queen backs stood out for me.
So Familia was pitching a save while his wife was giving birth. His bad luck, I guess, that he couldn't be there with her.

His Wikipedia page wasn't much help beyond saying she was his fiancée at the time and that he was arrested last October on domestic violence charges.
