6Q: Bucky Dent
Six Questions with:
Bucky Dent – Former Baseball Player and Manager
Bucky Dent is a former Major League Baseball player and manager. He earned two World Series rings as the starting shortstop for the New York Yankees in 1977 and 1978, and was also voted the ’78 World Series MVP. Dent is probably most famous for his home run in a tie-breaker game against the Boston Red Sox at the end of the ’78 season. He also served as Manager of the Yankees for a short time before, you guessed it, he was fired by George Steinbrenner.
We recently had the chance to ask Bucky our Gunaxin Six Questions in conjunction with his work with SUBWAY®. Dent participated in a meet-and-greet and autograph session with SUBWAY® at the fourth stop of the SUBWAY® Baseball DeSIGNS tour, a unique traveling national tour of more than 40 baseballs designed by kids and autographed by celebrities.
