RIP, Jim Fregosi

Featured Card: 1992 Topps Gold #669

1992 Topps Gold Fregosi475Just two innings. If Fregosi made different decisions in the eighth inning of Game Four and the ninth inning of Game Six of the 1993 World Series, he would have became the second manager in franchise history to guide them to do so. He also would have managed the incredibly rare feat of taking a team from last to World Champions in just one year. Alas, his insistence on using his closer in save situations, regardless of whether the faith was justified, prevented that from happening. Even though he didn’t win that World Series, he still gets credit for managing what is easily one of the most beloved squads in franchise history.

RIP, Jim.
