Sparky Anderson

1970 Topps

George Lee “Sparky” Anderson (February 22, 1934 - November 4, 2010) managed the Cincinnati Reds (1970-1978) and the Detroit Tigers (1979-1995) for 26 years. Sparky Anderson won five pennants and three World Series during his 26-year career (1970-1995). In 1984, Sparky became the first manager in baseball history to win World Series in both the American League and National Leagues. Early in his playing, George was nicknamed “Sparky” in the minors by a local radio announcer due to his aggressive playing style, but it was his managerial nickname, “Captain Hook”, that revolutionized today’s game. Anderson wasted no time going to his bullpen replacing a starting pitcher with a reliever at the first sign of trouble. This practice remains standard in the Major League Baseball today. The Veterans Committee elected George Lee “Sparky” Anderson to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000 in his first year of eligibility.
