Falco Files: Hey! Hey! Hey! It's A A

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Visit the official site here.

Breast Cancer will be detected in one of eight women in the US each year.
It is the second leading cause of cancer death among women each year.
On average every 2 minutes a woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer and every 13 minutes one person will die from breast cancer.
There are currently 33 million breast cancer survivors in the USA.

It's important to support the research for cancer.  Breast Cancer is often associated with the color pink so I will be showing off some pink Cutch cards.

In addition, you can expect to see some boobs with each post.  Who doesn't love boobs?

So let's start with what we're hoping to save!
Dania Ramirez is the subject today

The name may sound familar, but you might not recognize where she made one of her early costarring roles...

Starred as Lauri in the 2004 Kenan Thompson Fat Albert film.

She played the role of Callisto in the 3rd installment of the X-Men franchise, X-Men: The Last Stand. (I will never speak of this movie again and neither should anyone else)
She has been busy lately appearing on various small screen roles

Her most notable recent role is playing Cinderella as part of the 7th season of Once Upon a Time.

Originally from the Dominican Republic, Dania has also played the role of Rosie in the Hulu series, Devious Maids.

A famous scene from the show got me thinking about another certain Dominican born baseball player who has a strange act of bending his knees together and squatting prior to each plate appearance as if he is praying.

I have a card of that player which just so happens to be a pink prizm from 2019 Prizm.

It's of a guy who actually was traded for Andrew McCutchen from the Yankees to the Giants, thus he becomes a Falco Files candidate.

Wanna see it?

Abiatal Avelino has one of the most bizarre at bat rituals which you can see in action below in the screenshot posted.
I can only hope one day an image like that gets put on a Stadium Club style card one day.

In the meantime I do have this pink Prizm which talks about his weird stance.

An interview can be seen below and you can see his bizarre pre at bat regimen around the 12:40 mark.
For those that are aware of Batting Stance Guy, the guy who mimics everyone's batting stance he did Abiatal fairly well for being on a float in the middle of water. It is definitely worth a watch and a chuckle.


  1. A actress I've of and a ballplayer I've never heard of in one post...Good job!

  2. Mostly I know her from the first (and only good) season of Heroes.

  3. That's an interesting bat ritual. Hope he gets a lot of use for it now; he can't do it in 15 years or so!

  4. Love the Batting Stance Guy. One of my former students is really good at mimicking different MLB players too.

  5. I love watching the in depth parts of the game not just the game itself such as the bat rituals and stances

  6. I used to like batting stance guy, but I'm not a fan anymore. I don't like the stupid faces he makes after he's done. I don't really get it. He was better when he just mimicked and didn't over exaggerate/look like a goon.

  7. Beautiful woman for sure. Thanks for sharing.
