565th Place - Thad Bosley
Look at the sheer optimism of Thad Bosley in this picture. I love it. He's scanning the field and imagining which gap he'll slap the ball towards.
Bosley had a nice long career in the majors, mostly as a fourth outfielder/pinch-hitter type. He broke into the majors in 1977 and played his final season in 1990. In that span he played for seven different teams, so he was well traveled.
He spent a large part of his post-playing days as a coach at the major league and even university levels. He was infamously dumped by the Texas Rangers in 2011 for bad communication with the hitters.
I hope you all have a great 2018 - thanks as always for taking time to visit the blog!
