1987 Fleer, Chris Bosio
#338 Chris Bosio
Here is the first of three cards that I got signed by Chris Bosio at Spring Training last year. Chris is the pitching coach for the Cubs and I was able to get the cards signed by the Cubs bullpen before a game against the Brewers in Maryvale.
This was my second encounter with Chris as I was able to get him to sign three cards for me two and a half years ago when he was the pitching coach for the Brewers AAA in Nashville. Those cards were signed in Des Moines at an Iowa Cubs game. It's kind of funny that the first time I got him was while he worked for the Brewers and was visiting the Cubs. Then this last time, he was working with the Cubs and visiting the Brewers.
Chris is going to be back with the Cubbies again this year. He is one of the few holdovers from Dale Sveum's staff. Speaking of the Cubs coaching staff, I noticed that Eric Hinske is now their first base coach. I guess I did not realize that he had retired.
