“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Sparky Anderson (American Coach)
George Lee "Sparky" Anderson is fifth on the all-time list for manager career wins in Major League Baseball and is the first manager to win the World Series while leading clubs in both leagues. He piloted the National League's Cincinnati Reds to the 1975 and 1976 championships, then added a third title in 1984 with the Detroit Tigers of the American League.
Either manager in the 1984 Series would have been the first to win in both leagues, since San Diego Padres manager Dick Williams had previously won the series with the Oakland Athletics in 1972 and 1973.
