Chris Sabo Biography

Chris Sabo was born January 19, 1962, in Detroit, Michiganand is a former third baseman in Major League Baseball who played for theCincinnati Reds (1988-93, 1996), Baltimore Orioles (1994), Chicago White Sox(1995) and St. Louis Cardinals (1995). At 6'0 and 180 lb (82 kg), hebatted and threw right-handed. He attended Detroit Catholic Central HighSchool.

He was originally drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1980 butdid not sign, opting to attend the University of Michigan. He was selected bythe Cincinnati Reds in the 2nd round of the 1983 amateur draft.

Sabo was an unknown, having toiled in the minor leagues forseveral seasons. But in 1988, Buddy Bell started the season on the disabledlist and the Reds needed a third baseman. Sabo stepped in and won the NationalLeague Rookie of the Year Award with a .271 average and 46 steals.

After a forgettable 1989 campaign, Sabo returned to helplead the Reds to a World Series Championship. He had his most productive seasonin 1991, posting career-highs in batting average (.301), home runs (26), RBI(88), hits (175) and games played (153).

Sabo made the National League All-Star team in 1988, 1990and 1991.

After injuries limited his play in 1992, his productiondropped off drastically. Sabo never again hit above .260 nor would have morethan 10 steals in a season.

Baltimore signed him in 1994 where he endured anotherinjury-plagued season and then split 1995 between Chicago and St. Louis.

His final season was in Cincinnati in 1996. His homecomingdid not go as well as he had hoped. In July of that season, Sabo shattered hisbat which was filled with cork. As a result of the incident, Sabo received aseven-game suspension.

Sabo maintains that he had never corked a bat in his life.He claimed that the bat in question belonged to another player (whom he wouldnot name). He argued that his performance that season (3HR in 52 games) washardly an endorsement of the cork industry.

In a nine-season career, Sabo was a .268 hitter with 116home runs and 426 RBI in 911 games.

Reds manager Pete Rose gave Sabo the nicknameSpuds during his rookie season in 1988, citing a resemblance to abull terrier character in Bud Light commercials named Spuds MacKenzie. Sabo wasrecognizable by his wraparound protective eyeglasses commonly known as RecSpecs.

His son, Mike Bruno Sabo is a ball boy for the Reds.

He is currently enrolled at Salmon P. Chase College of Lawat Northern Kentucky University.

Sabo was inducted in the Cincinnati Reds Hall Of Fame, alongwith Pedro Borbn and Tony Mullane on July 17, 2010. The Cincinnati Reds gaveaway Chris Sabo bobblehead dolls to fans in attendance that evening.
