Major League Baseball Player, Coach, Manager. For seven seasons (1957 to 1958, 1961 to 1965), he played at the third-base position with the Detroit Tigers, Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds. Boros attended Northern High School (Flint, Michigan), and the University of Michigan, before he was signed as an amateur free agent by Detroit in 1957. He marked his Major League debut with the Tigers on June 19th, 1957 and appeared in 24 games that season. He spent the next two years in the Minor Leagues (earning 1960 League MVP honors with the Denver Bears, when he belted 30 home runs with 119 runs driven in, and posted a .317 batting average), before returning to the majors in 1961; he enjoyed his most productive season that year, as he recorded 107 hits and 62 runs driven in, with a .270 batting average. The following year (1962), he hit a career-high 16 home runs. In 422 total games, he compiled 308 hits with a .245 lifetime batting average. Following his playing career, he served as a Minor League manager (1970 to 1974), before returning to the big league level, serving on the Kansas City Royals' (1975 to 1979, 1993 to 1994) and Montreal Expos' (1981 to 1982) coaching staffs. Boros succeeded Billy Martin as manager of the Oakland Athletics, and remained at that capacity for parts of two seasons (1983 to 1984). He served as manager of the San Diego Padres during the 1986 season, scouted with the Dodgers' organization in 1988, and was a part of the Baltimore Orioles' coaching staff in 1995. He returned to the Tigers' organization in 1996, where he was a Minor League field coordinator and later special assistant to the general manager. (bio by: C.S.)
