Tony Pena (given name, Antonio Francisco Pena Padilla) is a true RBI legend. Whether it's coming up in the clutch with a late homerun or participating in a clever autograph for a one-time Dee Nee member, he's an underrated piece of the St. Louis Cardinals in RBI Baseball. Tony wasn't too shabby in real life either, as he was a 5-time MLB All Star and a 4-time Gold Glove winner. His managerial career with the Kansas City Royals was filled with ups and downs and ended in his resignation midway through the 2005 season.

Tony Pena in RBI

Tony bats 8th and catches for the crafty St. Louis Cardinals. While he would be considered a complete and utter turd on big-bopper teams like Detroit or Boston, he's a nice complement to the speed of the Cardinals and a welcome addition of power (let's face it, after hitting with Ozzie Smith and Tommy Herr, Pena seems to tee of like Potatoes.)
