To wrap up my series of posts on recent Phillies coaches, I needed a catch-all post to document those men who held official coaching positions outside the normal coaching positions. According to the Phillies Yearbooks and Media Guides back to 1970, these are those "other" guys:
Bobby Wine 1972 - Wine would go on to serve as the first base coach beginning in 1973
Tony Taylor 1977-1978 - Taylor would move to the first base coach's box in 1979
Mick Billmeyer 2004-2008 - Billmeyer became the team's bullpen coach in 2009
Assistant Hitting Coach
Wally Joyner 2013
There was also a Chachi card I wanted to feature, showing the team's four interim coaches from the wonderful 2008 season. These guys aren't listed on the official coach's roster within the team's Media Guide, but they definitely served time with the team during the 2008 season.
Roly de Armas' name came up within the post I did on the team's bullpen coaches, and you should check out the comments to that post for further reading as to why he was with the club in 2008. Former Phillie Jerry Martin served as the club's interim first base coach early in the year while regular coach Davey Lopes recovered from prostate cancer surgery.
Finally, both Greg Legg and Doug Mansolino spent time with the club when regular bench coach Jimy Williams left the club to tend to personal matters. These guys don't appear on any official Phillies lists as being a part of the 2008 club, and if not for this post and their Chachi card, this pertinent knowledge* could have been lost in the sands of time.
*At least to maybe a dozen of us.
