Bruce Bochy was a backup catcher and pinch hitter for the Astros, Mets and Padres for nine years, but never started more than 29 games in a season.

Bochy became a minor league manager for the Padres when his playing days ended, eventually joining the big-league club as third-base coach in 1993.

He became the first former Padres player to manage the team when he replaced Jim Riggleman.

The Padres surged to the best record in the NL West in 1996, earning Bochy the Manager of the Year award -- the first ever for a Padre manager.

Two years later, he led the team to the World Series and was named Manager of the Year for the second time in three years.

At the end of the 2006 season, having won the National League West Division for the second straight year, Bochy's contract was not renewed by San Diego. He was soon grabbed by the San Francisco Giants to manage for the 2007 season.
