BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH)–One of the best characters in sports, without a doubt, is former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen.
You won’t get any cliches from this guy. If he’s thinking it, he says it. And on Friday night, he managed the Bridgeport Bluefish.
Guillen threw out the first pitch and then spent some time with the fans and the ‘Fish. The team said he was going to coach third, but he didn’t. He said he didn’t want to mess anything up.
Guillen of course managed the White Sox to the World Series title in 2005, and he also won a title as a third base coach with the Florida Marlins in ’03.
So, where does he keep his rings?
“Home. I’m not the type of guy–I’m very shy about that,” he said. “I’m not shy about many things but I am very shy about people asking me ‘what is that.'”
“I don’t have to show off my ring to show people who I am,” Guillen said. “I got one ring that I think is more important, my wedding ring.”
