JEFF TORBORG
Jeff Torborg

Biography:Jeff Torborg (born November 26, 1941 in Plainfield, New Jersey) is a former catcher and manager in Major League Baseball. Torborg was signed by Los Angeles Dodgers as an amateur free agent in 1963. On September 9, 1965, Torborg caught Sandy Koufax's perfect game. On May 15, 1973, Torborg also caught the first of Nolan Ryan's 7 no-hitters.

After a successful ten-year career as a catcher with the Dodgers and Angels, Torborg switched to coaching. In 1977, he became the manager of the Cleveland Indians (a position he held for three years). In 1989, Torborg became the manager of the Chicago White Sox. A year later, the White Sox won 94 games which was a 25 game improvement from 1989. For his efforts with the 1990 Chicago White Sox, Torborg won the American League Manager of the Year Award. Torborg would stay with the White Sox for one more year before moving to the New York Mets.

Unfortunately, Torborg wasn't as successful with the Mets as he was with the White Sox. A year after leading the White Sox to an 87-75 record, Torborg's 1992 New York Mets posted a 70-92 record. After starting the 1993 season with a 13-25 record, the Mets fired Torborg and replaced him with Dallas Green, who had led the Philadelphia Phillies to their first ever World Championship in 1980.

For the rest of the 1990s, Torborg kept busy working as a sportscaster for the likes of CBS Radio and Fox. Torborg returned to managing first with the Montreal Expos in 2001 and then the Florida Marlins in 2002.

In 2003, Torborg was fired from the Florida Marlins after they started off the season 16-22. Jack McKeon was hired to replace him and led them to the 2003 World Series victory. He then returned to brodcasting on Fox. He has been hired as the color commentator for Atlanta Braves games on FSN South, replacing Tom Paciorek.
