It’s time for the next edition of 18 Sports Flashback, this time we go back to 1989 and Horseheads native Kirt Manwaring playing for the San Francisco Giants.
Manwaring, who played 13 years in the big leagues, won the National League Pennant with the San Francisco Giants as a catcher. In 1989, this video was of Manwaring celebrating in the clubhouse after the team’s win over the Chicago Cubs.
Kirt eventually won a Gold Glove with the Giants in 1993. His son, Dylan, is now a catcher in the Giants farm system. Take a look back at this edition of 18 Sports Flashback.
