Bucky Dent – Bucky is known throughout the baseball world as one of the most respected defensive coaches. He honed his craft as a three-time American League All-Star and played on two World Championship teams with the New York Yankees.
Bucky became a household name, and also a thorn in the side of Red Sox fans, when he shocked Boston with a three-run home run over The Wall at Fenway Park in the 1978 Divisional Playoff game against the Red Sox. Bucky went on to be named the 1978 World Series MVP as the Yankees won their second-straight championship.
He spent seven years as the Texas Rangers’ dugout coach and one year as the manager for the Omaha Royals, the Class AAA affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, then the Yankees as manager of the Class AAA Columbus Clippers, and one season as bench coach with the Cincinnati Reds.
Bucky is the founder and co-owner of the world famous Bucky Dent Baseball School in Delray Beach, Florida.
