  • What Ever Happen To ......

    Some players come to my mind whatever happen to them?
    Richie Hebner? Rennie Stennett? Dave Cash? Manny S. Gene Alley? Bob Moose?

    These are just a few I can think of right now (being late) but what happen to some of the guys that were the 1970's players on the Bucs teams.:cap:

    What are they doing these days? Are they coaching?Have they written any books?

      Manny Sanguillen is helping out the Pirate catchers at camp right now. Once the season begins, you can see him most nights at "Manny's BBQ" right on the riverwalk at PNC Park. I'm not sure what the other guys are up to, but Hebner, Manny, and Rennie Stennett will be featured on "lumber company" bobbleheads this season (along with Dave Parker and Wille Stargell too) and will probably be there to throw out the ceremonial first pitch on their respective bobblehead nights.
      LETS GO BUCS!!

          According to some research I was doing, Stennett attempted a comeback with the Pirates in the spring of 1989. He signed a contract with AAA Buffalo but was released by the Pirates on April 4, 1989.

          In the 1990s he was one of the "Upper Deck Heroes of Baseball" that made the rounds at MLB parks, most notably at the 1994 All Star Game in Pittsburgh. In 1991 and 1992, along with other former stars, he traveled to Japan for a series of exhibitions.

            After Richie Hebner retired after the 1985 season, he was away from the game for a couple of years and then got into coaching/managing:

            In 1988 Richie was named manager of the Blue Jays Class A in Myrtle Beach, SC, where he led the team to the playoffs and was named manager of the year.

            From 1989 to 1991 he was on the hitting coach on staff of the Red Sox. He replaced Walt Hrniak and had some philisophical differences in hitting with Wade Boggs, Mike Greenwell and even Red Sox special assistant Ted Williams.

            After Joe Morgan and his staff were fired in Boston, Hebner returned to the Blue Jays as a roving hitting instructor in 1993.

            In mid-season 1995, he was named manager of the AAA Blue Jays affiliate, the Syracuse Chiefs, where he managed future superstar Carlos Delgado. He managed there in 1996 and he fired at the end of the season.

            In 1997 he returned to the Pirates as the first the hitting coach for Lynchburg in A ball and in 1998-99 was the hitting coach for the AAA Nashville Sounds. In 2000 the was named manager of Nashville, where he managed future major leaguers Bronson Arroyo and Emil Brown.

            In 2001 was on Larry Bowa's coaching staff of the Phillies as hitting coach
            From 2002 to 2006 was the hitting coach for the Durham Bulls, the AAA affiliate of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
