Julio Cesar Bruno

Julio Bruno is the fourth consecutive card of a player who never actually played for the Padres. Julio played in the Padres minor league system from 1990-1996 getting as far as AAA in both 1995 and 1996. In 1997 he played for the Tigers at AA, and from 1998-2000 he played for Tabasco of the Mexican League. From 2001-2006 he managed the Dominican Summer League Royals, in 2007 he was the hitting coach for the Arizona League Royals and in 2008 he was promoted to Manager of the Arizona League Royals. I got the card in a lot on ebay.

Alright, a Royals connection! It's always fun to go through the Padrographs that you gave to me to find a Royals connection.

Also, I'm going to try to send some cards your way tomorrow. So, be on the lookout.
