Player Profile: Tim Bogar

I have fifteen cards of Tim Bogar. This one is from 1994 Topps.

Playing career: Infielder Tim Bogar played nine seasons for the Mets, Astros and Dodgers. In 701 games he hit .228 with 24 HR and 161 RBI.

Where he is now: Bench coach for the Texas Rangers.

My memories: I remember him as a Mets prospect, didn’t realize he actually spent more time as an Astro. Of course, in his recent tenure as Red Sox third base coach he got more national press than many team managers. It seemed like you heard calls for his firing every time a Boston runner was thrown out at home plate.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Tim Bog, between Tim Bogert, a bass guitarist, and Tim Boggs, a TV sound designer. Another prominent Tim Bogar is President of UnFranchise in Harrisburg, PA.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Ilya Bogatyrev.
