Happy Birthday George “Sparky” Anderson!!!
Today we celebrate the birthday and life of Hall of Famer and legendary manager of the ‘Big Red Machine’, Mr. George ‘Sparky’ Anderson. Always a fan favorite, Anderson provided some great quotes during the course of his coaching career.
Here is a small sampling:
“If I ever find a pitcher who has heat, a good curve, and a slider, I might seriously consider marrying him, or at least proposing.”
“I understand people who boo us. It’s like going to Broadway show, you pay for your tickets and expect to be entertained. When you’re not, you have a right to complain.”
“The day I got a hit off (Sandy) Koufax was when he knew it was all over.”
A true character and a legendary personality in the sport, Sparky Anderson is 1-of-a-kind!!!
Happy Birthday, Mr. Anderson!!!
