I checked to confirm it. He was a bit player as a Pilots' coach in "Ball Four." Bouton wrote about all of the WS checks a Crosetti got as a player & coach w/ Yanks


Having grown up with the Yankees, I gave this some thought

When Yogi Berra turned out to be the wrong answer, I figured it was someone who was known more in the coaching ranks than as a player. The Crow just popped into my head.

personnel? Owner? GMs? Announcers?

Phil Rizzuto and Jerry Coleman would have a bundle.

I had a tour of Wrigley on Friday and all of the employees got a ring of some sort for last season.

I think Stengel had 7 titles as manager.

The on-line stuff I see has Yogi with 15 as player, manager and coach. Crosetti might have had more.
