“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Bruce Douglas Bochy is the manager of the San Francisco Giants. Prior to joining the Giants on October 27, 2006 , Bochy had been the manager of the San Diego Padres for twelve seasons. Bochy is the only former Padre player to serve as the team's manager. He led the Padres to four of the five postseason appearances in their history, winning division titles in 1996, 1998, 2005, and 2006. In 1998, he led the Padres to their first National League pennant in 14 years, where they lost to the New York Yankees in the World Series.
In 1996, Bochy was named the NL Manager of the Year. He won over 900 games as manager of the Padres - the most in team history - despite often being saddled with low-budget squads.
