Phillies make Schmidt Class-A manager in Clearwater  

 Oct. 14, 2003

SportsLine.com wire reports      

PHILADELPHIA -- Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt was hired Tuesday to manage the Philadelphia Phillies' Class-A team in Clearwater, Fla.

This will be the first managerial job for the 54-year-old former third baseman. In 2002, he was a part-time hitting instructor with the Phillies.

Schmidt hit 548 homers -- ninth in major-league history -- and won three MVP awards and 10 Gold Gloves. He made 12 All-Star teams during a career spent entirely with Philadelphia (1972-89).

He walked away from the game while the Phillies were in San Diego on Memorial Day 1989 when he felt he could not play at the level he expected from himself.

In 1995, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

I wish more legends would go out like Schmidt did, instead of endlessly hanging around. Or retiring and unretiring half a dozen times.

Oh, man...lighten up, willya? He retired on his own terms, not somebody else's. He stands as one of the top 2 3rd basemen of all time, if not the best (along with Brooks Robinson of the O's)

just kidding
