Today's Quiz.
Before Bowa, who was the Phillie 3rd base coach?

Jim said...

I will have to get back to you on that . . .

Dave Bristol comes to mind but I think there was someone after Bristol.

Here's the scoop. Bowa was the 3rd base coach from August 1988 through the 1996 season. On August 11, 1988, new GM Lee Thomas fired 3rd base coach Dave Bristol, who had rejoined the team that spring. (Bristol had previously been the 3rd base coach from 1982 through 1985). In 1986 and 1987, the 3rd base coach was that Jim Davenport. Please let me know if there are any further questions.
