CAC-RAMSAY EMPLOYEES WARM UP TO THROW OUT AND CATCH THE FIRST BALL AT JRS FOR FLORIDA MARLINS VS. CHICAGO CUBS GAME

 CORAL GABLES, Fla., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Ramsay-HMO, Inc. (NYSE: RMO), and its subsidiaries, CAC-Ramsay Health Plans, and CBAI, is holding the annual company picnic at Joe Robbie Stadium on Sunday, May 23, prior to the game that features the Florida Marlins against the Chicago Cubs. More than 3,000 employees and their families are expected to attend the festivities and then the ball game which begins at 1:35 p.m. It's a day that many are looking forward to, especially Panchon Herrera, a long-time employee of CAC-Ramsay Health Plans, who will have the honor of throwing out the first ball. He'll also be reliving vivid memories of the days when he played ball for the Miami Marlins, a AAA club from Syracuse, N.Y., which moved to South Florida in 1956. Herrera was the first Cuban player to play professionally in Miami. He later moved on to Buffalo where he won the Batting, Homer and RBI crowns in 1959. Following that, Herrera played in the major leagues with the Philadelphia Phillies. Said Herrera, "Baseball is my first love and I can't wait to get to the game. It's gonna be a fantastic occasion and I'm honored that I have the chance to do this."
 Joining Herrera on the mound will be Paul Ramsay, chairman of Ramsay-HMO, Inc., Luis Lamela, president/CEO of Ramsay-HMO, Inc. and long-time employee, Jorge Maduro, who will have the honor of catching the ball. Jorge Maduro is the son of the well-known baseball promoter Bobby Maduro.
 Jorge Maduro was a star player as well in the last 1960s and early 1970s. After a brilliant career in college sports, he was selected in the 1969 free-agent draft and played one year for Fort Lauderdale in the Class A Florida League, followed by a year in Class AA with Manchester, then two years with the Syracuse Yankees in the Class AAA League. He's also been inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame and was called by Coach Ron Fraser, "The best catcher I've seen in college baseball."
 "It's going to be a day that everyone will enjoy and remember for a long time," said Lamela. "We're ready to play ball!"
