Hirings & Firings: Charlie (Chuck) Manual

Recently retired Phillies Manager, Charlie Manual, was once a Major League outfielder for the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Dodgers.  Looking through all of my Topps sets for the years he played, I could only find the following two cards of Manual as a player.  He played for the Twins for 4 seasons between '69-'72, and appeared in the postseason twice during the first two years of the ALCS: 1969 and 1970.  Both times, the Twins lost out to the Orioles.  Manual was traded to the Dodgers in '73 and played for the club during the '74 and '75 seasons.
