In 1940, following Hershberger's suicide and an injury to Ernie Lombardi, he was activated from the coaching ranks at the age of 40 during the September pennant race. He went on to become the hero of the 1940 World Series, as he caught the last six games of the seven game Series. He was the hitting star of the Series at .323, had the only stolen base in the entire Series, and laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt in the 7th inning of the decisive 7th game that led to the Reds' Series-winning run.
Also Jimmie Wilson, while managing the Phillies in 1935, was the one who converted Bucky Walters from a mediocre third baseman into a outstanding pitcher who many think belongs in the Hall of Fame. In an ironic twist of baseball fate, Bucky Walters ended up pitching to his mentor Jimmie Wilson in the 1940 World Series, where they were both lauded as the heroes of the Series.

Your Second Base Coach
Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. Thatís equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.
Hubbell is the fourth player from the right, bottom row.
