Professional Baseball Player, Manager. A right handed pitcher who spent most of his playing career in the minor leagues before playing for the New York Giants and the Baltimore Orioles, he is best remembered for managing the Milwaukee Brewers. His "Bambi's Bombers" of the late 1970s captured the imagination and devotion of Brewers fans. Prior to coming to the Brewers he was the pitching coach for the Orioles from 1968-1977. He helped produce 4 Cy Young Award winners and pitchers who won 20 or more games 18 times. Following a short retirement for health reasons he returned to manage the Mets from 1982-83 before returning to the Brewers to manage in 1984 and 1986. (bio by: Ron Moody)
