Managing friends Roberts, Hinch head to head in World Series Dave customized basketball jerseys Roberts, A.J. Hinch and their families were having breakfast together during the All-Star break this summer when the old friends started talking about their jobs. They were managing the two best teams in the major leagues. And they still are, a pair of 100-win teams going head-to-head in the World Series. "We both, we kind of rooted each other on that we would meet each other in October and fight it out for the World Series," Hinch said. "To see this kind of play itself out like this, it's really — I can't even think of an Customized Baseball Jerseys adjective. It's Customized Football Jerseys crazy, yeah," Roberts explained. From that summer conversation in San Diego, where the two had worked together in the past and spent their short midseason break, they have gotten to the Fall Classic. This is a matchup of still-young managers who played against each other as standouts in the Pac-10 — Roberts the UCLA outfielder and Hinch the Stanford catcher who was a two-time Pac-10 player of the year. Now Roberts is in his second season managing the Los Angeles Dodgers and Hinch in his third leading the Houston Astros. Like in college, their major league playing careers overlapped some, customized hockey jerseys though it appears that Roberts and Hinch played in only one game against each other at the highest level. Roberts, who left UCLA as the school's career leader in stolen bases, was with the Cleveland Indians when he stole a base against Hinch, then with Oakland. But the two really became friends when working together later with the Padres. Hinch was in San Diego's front office from September 2010 through August 2014, in a role that he described as an assistant general manager and sort of a liaison for the coaching staff. Roberts was then an assistant coach for the Customized Baseball Jerseys Padres. "Yeah, we crossed paths. Really didn't really know each other very well. In the similar circles. Became really close in San Diego," Roberts said. "And really talked, planned, front office, managing, coaching. So we really had a lot of spirited, open-hearted conversations." They are friends whose relationship is a bit different at the pinnacle of the season. More information can follow, thank you!
