Kirt Manwaring

1988 Donruss

Manwaring caught for 13 seasons in the majors, mostly for the San Francisco Giants, but later for the Houston Astros and Colorado Rockies. In 1,008 games, Manwaring hit .246 with 21 home runs. His best year at the plate came in 1993 while playing for San Francisco. He appeared in a career-high 130 games that year while hitting .275 with five home runs and setting career highs in RBIs (49) and runs scored (48). In addition, Manwaring won the National League Gold Glove for catchers that season.

Manwaring’s Giants went 103-59 in 1993, but failed to make the playoffs as the Atlanta Braves won the NL West with a 104-58 mark. (Don’t forget, this was before wild cards and the expanded playoff format.)

Manwaring is recognized on the Giants Wall of Fame.
