Has there been a recent case where a “hometown” favorite went on to manage the “hometown” team and he did a great job?
I’m thinking about guys like Mike Hargrove, Bill Russell, Larry Bowa, Ozzie Guillen, Pete Rose, Alan Trammell and Bud Harrelson.
Am I missing anyone?
More times than not, it seems not to work out. Should this be something that the Yankees are concerned about, when considering whether or not to hire Don Mattingly as manager?
