Fernando Valenzuela Signs With Sports Placement Service Inc.

Los Angeles, CA – Sports Placement Service Inc. founder Harlan J. Werner announced Dodger Legend Fernando Valenzuela has signed an exclusive contract with his company to make his first ever baseball card show appearance in Los Angeles and to create and produce a limited number of signed products. “I grew up a Dodger Fan, I watched first hand how the city of Los Angeles, baseball fans around the country and millions of Spanish speaking fans around followed every pitch made by Fernando. It was a great time to be a Dodger Fan and witness Fernandomania as a teenager”, said Werner.

Fernando broke onto the scene in 1981 and in his rookie season became the first rookie to win both the rookie of the year and the Cy Young Award in the same season. His pitching both in the regular season and his three wins in the post season led the Los Angeles Dodgers to their first World Series Title in twenty six years. Fernando was named to the All-Star team six times, threw a no-hitter in 1990 and was considered one of the best hitting pitchers ever retiring with a lifetime batting average of .250.
