Walter Ramirez has become the latest player to leave the San Antonio Scorpions as it was revealed that he had joined Indy Eleven on Thursday.

Ramirez becomes, ironically, the eleventh player to join the club, meaning Indy finally have an eleven and will bring vast experience to the new club.

The 30 year-old had a mixed season in 2013, falling out of favor with Tim Hankinson, but being well favored by Alen Marcina who still let him go.

Hailing from Le Ceiba, Honduras is not a unique thing at his club any more for Ramirez as he’ll join city compatriot Erick Norales at the Eleven.

Ramirez had some memorable moments with the Scorpions, including making the 2012 NASL Best XI and a phenomenal goal of the season contender in 2013.

For those moments of magic there was also frustrating times, with Ramirez being left out of the side for lengthy periods under Hankinson who criticized his work rate.

Ramirez could be a frustrating player as he could clearly show his skill, but too often would use that skill more than looking for a solid pass, and would often try and be too clever and give possession away.

The Eleven now have three players that have NASL experience also picking up Mike Ambersley and Pedro Mendes, from Tampa and Atlanta respectively, giving them a slight edge when taking on the former teams.

Indy Eleven will play their first ever match next Wednesday as they take on MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps in Tucson joining up with several teams currently training at the site.
