We remember Leo Durocher (1905-91)

The legendary Leo Durocher was born on this day in 1905.     Leo broke with the Yankees in 1925 but did not start playing on a regular basis until 1928 when he hit .270 in 102 games.   

Durocher had a pretty good career with the Yankees, Reds, Cardinals and Dodgers.   He was primarily a short stop.

He finished with a .247 career average.

As a manager, Durocher won 2,008 games, 3 NL Pennants and the World Series with the 1954 Giants.  

We remember him as a very colorful figure on and off the field.    His signature line was "Nice guys finish last":
