Ramsey was the 1982 Cardinals’ utility man, seeing action in over 20 games at shortstop, third base and second base. He played in three games of the 1982 World Series, but had just one at bat, striking out against Moose Haas in the bottom of the eighth inning of Game 7. Ramsey did score a run in the game though, as he entered as a pinch runner for Gene Tenace in the bottom of the sixth and scored on a George Hendrick single, to put St. Louis up 4-3. The run ended up being the winning run in the game, as the Cardinals held on for a 6-3 victory.
