Baseball: Roberto Ramos has 11 home runs with wood bat
It always causes people to look twice when San Fernando's Roberto Ramos steps to the plate. He's one of the few players who uses a wood bat.
Ramos, a transfer from Birmingham, has hit 11 home runs this season for the Tigers, who play Banning in Wednesday's 6 p.m. City Section Division I semifinal at USC.
He's 6 feet 3, 230 pounds and is expected to be taken in next month's amateur draft. Scouts love that he uses a wood bat.
