1986 Topps Traded #112T Milt Thompson

Milt Thompson is enjoying his third stint with the Phillies. In December 1985, Milt was traded with Steve Bedrosian from the Atlanta Braves for Pete Smith and Ozzie Virgil. In 1987 and 1988, Milt was the Phils' regular center fielder. In December 1988, Milt was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals for Curt Ford and Steve Lake. He played with the Cards until coming back to the Phils via free agency prior to the 1993 season. He platooned with Pete Incaviglia in left field until his trade to the Houston Astros in July 1994.

Milt has been a coach with the Phillies since 2004, starting as the 1st base coach (2004) and now as the hitting coach (since 2005).
