Willie Randolph

Willie Larry Randolph
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 166 lbs.
Born: July 6, 1954 in Holly Hill, SC
Drafted: 7th round 1972 by the Pittsburgh Pirates
Acquired: as a free agent, December 1991
Departed: as a free agent, October 1992

 

A steady, professional ballplayer who was the epitome of an All-Star second baseman before the age of power-hitting middle infielders. Willie appeared in six League Championship Series, four World Series, and was selected to six All-Star teams in his career. After his playing career was over, he was treated to several more trips to the World Series as a member of the Yankees' coaching staff, and was finally rewarded in 2005 with the managerial reins to your very own New York Metropolitans. When he was unceremoniously fired midway through the 2008 season, he took with him the second-highest career winning percentage of any Met manager to date. The card shown here is from the 1990 Topps Big set; there are other scans below.
