Ramon Quintana was an outstanding pitcher for UVSC in the 1977 and 1978 seasons. He won 14 games for the Wolverines, which at the time, made him the college's all-time wins leader. To date, he still stands at number four on the all-time wins list.
Nicknamed the "Bionic Arm" Ramon pitched more innings at UVSC than any other pitcher in Wolverine history. He stands atop the school record book with 10 complete games and nearly 155 innings of work. He went 9-3 in 1977 with a 2.66 earned-run average, leading the Wolverines to the Intermountain Collegiate Athletic Conference title. He threw a one-hitter against Snow College, beating the Badgers 2-0 on May 16, 1977.
Quintana prepped at Ogden High before coming to UVSC. He was an All-State pitcher, and was named the MVP of the 4A All-Star game. Before that, he was a standout pitcher at Washington Junior High in Ogden. He also had several documented no-hitters in Ogden City Little League play.
After leaving UVSC, Quintana was offered a pro contract to play for Bakersfield in the Cal-State League, but opted to stay in Utah. He pitched his Ogden team to the Utah State Beehive Baseball championship in 1985.
Quintana is married to the former Yvonne Lujan of Draggerton, Utah. They have three children: Anthony, Kristy, and Cody. Anthony pitched and played outfield for Ogden High in the early 90's. Cody currently is a left-handed pitcher at Snowcrest Junior High in Eden, Utah.
