#485) AARON LEDESMA
Aaron Ledesma was selected by the New York Mets in the second round of the free agent draft on June 4, 1990. The highly regarded prospect made his major league debut for the Mets at Shea Stadium on July 2, 1995. He entered the game as a pinch-hitter and stroked a single off Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher John Smiley. Thus recording a hit in his first MLB at-bat. Ledesma appeared in 21 games for the Mets during the 1995 season. He was traded to the California Angels in return for Kevin Flora on January 18, 1996.
Aaron Ledesma signed his card from the set for me on May 4, 2009. It was following the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees game against the Indianapolis Indians. Aaron is a coach with the SWB Yankees.
