Bucky Dent Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Bucky Dent booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. Baseball great, Bucky Dent, born November 25, 1951, was born Russell Earl O'Dey. He is an American former Major League Baseball player and manager. He earned two World Series rings as the starting shortstop for the New York Yankees in 1977 and 1978, and was voted the World Series MVP in 1978. Dent is most famous for his home run in a tie-breaker game against the Boston Red Sox at the end of the 1978 season. The Red Sox had led the American League East Division by as much 10 games (July 6th) that season and led the New York Yankees by as much as 14 games (July 19th).

Born in Savannah, Georgia, Dent grew up in Sylvania, Georgia and Hialeah, Florida, graduating from Hialeah High School. Dent was the sixth pick in the 1970 major league draft. By the age of 21, he was playing shortstop for the Chicago White Sox. He wore uniform number 30 on the White Sox. The pressure of succeeding Luis Aparicio at the position was problematic, however, and in 1977 the White Sox traded him to the Yankees for Oscar Gamble, LaMarr Hoyt, a minor leaguer and $200,000. The Yankees gave him uniform number 20.

After retiring as a player, Dent managed in the Yankees' minor-league system, notably with the Columbus Clippers. He served the Yankees as manager of the big-league club for portions of two seasons, compiling an 18-22 record in 1989 and an 18-31 record in 1990. In 1992, George Steinbrenner called upon Dent to help train Derek Jeter, the Yankees' first-round pick that year.

Most recently, Dent threw out the first pitch to Yogi Berra in the seventh and final game of the 2004 American League Championship Series.

In November 2005, Dent became the bench coach for the Cincinnati Reds. The Cincinnati Reds released Dent on July 3, 2007; just a few days after releasing manager Jerry Narron. At the time, the Reds had the worst record in Major League Baseball.

Dent also runs a baseball school in Florida (Bucky Dent's Baseball School) that teaches young children baseball fundamentals.

He now lives in South Florida with his wife and 4 children, Scott Russell, Stacy Lynn and twins Cody Joseph and Caitlin Ann.
