SPACE COAST SPORTS HALL OF FAME BRUCE BOCHY
• 3-Time World Series Winning Manager
• Nine Year MLB Career
• College All American At BCC
As the son of an U.S. Army officer, Bruce Bochy grew up believing hard work counted for something.
He fell in love with baseball as a boy and first tested his skills on the diamond while playing at Melbourne High School.
Others quickly found that his passion for the game coupled with his desire to succeed was nothing short of inspirational and it has earned him induction into the Space Coast Sports Hall of Fame.
Following high school, Bochy went on to suit up for Brevard Community College as a catcher and was honored with selection to the All-America team for the 1975 Titans team that won a state championship under coach Jack Kenworthy.
He was drafted in the first round of the 1975 Major League Draft as the 24th overall pick by the Houston Astros.
He reached the big leagues in 1978 as a catcher and during a nine-year playing career with Houston, the New York Mets and the San Diego Padres, Bochy won over coaches and team officials with his ability to call pitches and manage games.
He returned to baseball in 1989 as a minor league manager, leading teams in Spokane, Wash., Riverside, Calif., Adelanto, Calif., and Wichita, Kan.
Larry Baer, the president and chief executive officer of the San Francisco Giants hired Bochy to replace Felipe Alou in the dugout for the 2007 season.
He guided the Giants to a World Series championship in 2010 defeating the Texas Rangers in five games and then led San Francisco to yet another World Series crown in 2012 by beating the Detroit Tigers in four games.
Bruce and his wife Kim have two sons, Brett and Greg. Brett is also a professional baseball player, presently pitching in the Giants’ farm system.
