Dick Schofield Still Loves Being in the Game

Dick Schofield still has baseball in his blood, twenty years after he last played in the major leagues.  He had a big league career that spanned from 1982 to 1996, primarily playing for the California Angels.

Dick is currently in his second year as the manager of the Billings Mustangs of the Pioneer League, an affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.

Schofield’s father, “Ducky” was also a major leaguer from 1952 to 1971, mostly as a utility infielder, but appearing in the World Series in 1960 for Pittsburgh and 1968 for St. Louis.

Dick’s nephew is Jayson Werth of the Washington Nationals, who is the son of his sister Kim.  She was quite an athlete herself, having competed in the U. S. Olympic trials as a sprinter and long jumper.
