We remember Don Zimmer who was born in Cincinnati on this day in 1931. He was drafted by the Dodgers in 1949 as a shortstop.
As a player, he hit .235 over 1,095 games with 5 teams.
Most of us remember him as a manager and Joe Torre's dugout coach with the Yankees.
As a manager, he won 885 and lost 858. He led the 1989 Cubs to the NL East but lost to the Giants in the NLCS. He did win several World Series titles under Joe Torre.
Great guy who spent 66 years in baseball. He died in 2014.
