Just because: Bruce Bochy in 1977

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

The year is 1977 -- where consequences were not welcome -- and young Bruce Bochy was surely master of all that he surveyed!

Young Bruce Bochy! Lean and generous of spirit! Shorn of tickler! An Adam's Apple that, if removed by a black-market surgeon, could be used as a sandlot baseball! Early adopter of the transition lens! A rumor not of war but rather of unibrow! Astros catcher!

Young Bruce would not make his major-league debut for another year, and little could he imagine that, some 25 years later, he would be crafting a Hall of Fame managerial career. Or perhaps, given the look of undaunted presumption, he couldn't imagine doing anything but crafting a Hall of Fame career of some flavor.

Even then, he had a voice worthy of narrating a James Coburn film.
