Player Profile: Rick Bosetti

I have nine cards of Rick Bosetti. This one is from 1980 Topps.

Playing career: Outfielder Rick Bosetti played for the Phillies, Cardinals, Blue Jays and A’s from 1976 to 1982. In 445 games he hit .250 with 17 HR and 133 RBI. A fuller account of his career can be found at the 1980 Topps Blog, where I learned that he is best known for urinating in the outfield of every ballpark he played in.

Where he is now: He has been the mayor of Redding, CA since 2008, though he is retiring in December. He also manages the collegiate-league Redding Colt 45s.

My memories: Before my time. Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Rick Bos, between Rick Bossley State Farm, an insurance agent in Goshen, NY, and Rick Bosh, an MSNBC reporter. There do not appear to be any other prominent Rick Bosettis.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Chris Bosio.
