715th Place - Chuck Tanner

Card #134

It's too bad we can't see who Tanner is talking to in this picture.  I can make out a letter "M" (maybe) and some feathered brown hair.  Rick Mahler?  Dale Murphy even?  It is odd they have a different color jersey on, unless it's a warm-up jacket.

Tanner is best known as the skipper of the "We Are Family" '79 Pirates, who defeated my Baltimore Orioles much to my retroactive chagrin.  Sadly, Tanner passed away in 2011.

"There are three secrets to managing. The first secret is have patience. The second is be patient. And the third most important secret is patience."  - C. Tanner
