Player Profile: Chris Bosio

I have 64 cards of Chris Bosio. This one is from 1994 Leaf.

Playing career: Chris Bosio pitched for the Brewers and Mariners from 1986 to 1996. In 309 games he went 94-93 with a 3.96 ERA. In 1993 he no-hit the Red Sox in one of his first games as a Mariner.

Where he is now: Pitching coach for the Chicago Cubs.

Interesting facts: He likes to floor it on the road, and thus is a regular in the traffic court in his Wisconsin home town. The website lists at least three occasions between 2010 and 2012 where he was ticketed for speeding and found guilty.

My memories: I remember him as a solid if unspectacular pitcher for many years. No specific memories.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Chris Bosi, ahead of Chris Bosh, Miami Heat star. Another prominent Chris Bosio is International Trade Manager at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Shawn Boskie.

  1. In the late 1980s, Bosio was often mistaken by little kids for Joey Meyer. Both of them were hefty, tall guys who wore mustaches/goatees, so it was an easy mistake to make. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Bosio did not appreciate that.
