Happy Reds birthday, Bill Plummer!

Plummer

March 21, 1947

Like Pat Corrales, Bill Plummer spent much of his career as a backup to the greatest catcher of all-time, Johnny Bench. Unlike Corrales, Plummer completed more than one game behind the plate for the Reds. He also extended his baseball life as a coach, and managed the Seattle Mariners to a 64-98 record in 1992. In 2016 he served as the catching coordinator for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
