Bucky Dent Featured Card of the Week

Bucky Dent is most known in Yankeeland for his home run in the 1978 one-game playoff at Fenway Park. Because of his shot over the Monster, Boston fans call him “Bucky Bleeping Dent.”

As this card signifies, Dent also managed the Yankees. As manager for parts of the 1989 and 1990 seasons, Dent compiled a 36-53 record.

His career totals as a player are less than spectacular, but still, he made a name for himself with one crack.

I found this comic that came out after Dent’s home run.
