Larry Bowa Biography
Larry Bowa was born December 6, 1945 in Sacramento, California and is a former middle infielder, playing mainly as a shortstop, and manager in Major League Baseball who played primarily for the Philadelphia Phillies. He is currently the third-base coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
After retiring, Bowa was named manager of the San Diego Padres in 1987, but his aggressive and often angry style were ineffective, and he was fired a year later. Bowa returned to managing, joining the Phillies in 2001, and was honored as Manager of the Year after bringing the team within two games of the division title; they had finished in last place in 2000. He was fired with two games remaining in the 2004 season after failing to finish within 10 games of first place in his last three years.
On November 5, 2007, the Los Angeles Dodgers hired him to be the team's new third base coach, following the hire of new manager Joe Torre. He previously served as a third base coach under managers Lee Elia, John Vukovich, Nick Leyva, Jim Fregosi, Terry Collins, and Lou Piniella.
On April 1, 2008 Bowa, was thrown out in the second game of the season due to arguing with umpire about standing out of the coaches box (he eventually threw a watercooler in the dugout). Bowa was subsequently suspended for three games and fined an undisclosed amount.
