Original member of the '62 Mets, including their Opening Day third baseman. But I also remember the job he did as manager of the '78 Red Sox. It's not mentioned nearly as often as it should be, but when that team of his collapsed in the late Summer and watched the Yanks catch and pass them, it would have been human nature for the story to end right there, with the team packing it in the rest of the way. But the Sox went on an impressive end-of-season winning streak to once again tie the Yanks and force that Classic Bucky Dent playoff in Fenway. And the job Zim did with the '89 Cubs was another gem.
