Delino Deshields Life

Delino Lamont DeShields (born January 15, 1969), also known as "Bop," is an American former professional baseball second baseman and Cincinnati Reds' current first base coach.

He appeared in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals, Baltimore Orioles, and Chicago Cubs between 1990 and 2002.

From 2012 to 2017, he played for the Louisville Bats in the Cincinnati Reds organization.

Delino DeShields Jr., his son, has been playing for the Texas Rangers since 2015.

Early life

DeShields was born in Seaford, Delaware, where his mother and grandmother raised him. At Seaford High School, he was an All-American in baseball and basketball. DeShields signed a letter of intent to play college basketball at Villanova University. However, after being selected as the 12th overall pick in the 1987 MLB draft, he opted for a career in baseball; the Montreal Expos signed him for $130,000.


Delino Deshields Career


DeShields made his Major League debut on Opening Day of the 1990 season for the Expos. He recorded four hits in his debut, the most for a debutant in the National League since Mack Jones 29 seasons earlier. He became the regular second baseman for the Expos in 1990, finishing in second place for the NL Rookie of the Year award. He suffered from a sophomore slump in 1991, but went on to post his two best years in 1992 and 1993, hitting .294 and averaging 45 stolen bases.

On November 19, 1993, DeShields was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for then-prospect Pedro Martínez. In retrospect, this is considered one of the worst trades in Dodgers history. DeShields hit .241 during his three years in Los Angeles, while Martinez went on to win three Cy Young Awards and established himself among the greatest pitchers of all time.

In 1996, DeShields signed as a free agent with the St. Louis Cardinals, and later played with the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago Cubs. In 2001, he was the last out in Hideo Nomo's no-hitter against the Baltimore Orioles.

After playing career

DeShields is the co-founder of the Urban Baseball League. He also travels with Oil Can Boyd to promote baseball in African American communities.

DeShields was the manager for the Dayton Dragons, a single-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds organization for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. On December 12, 2012, it was announced that DeShields would become the manager for the Cincinnati Reds AA minor league team, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos for the 2013 season. On December 1, 2014 DeShields became manager of the Louisville Bats, replacing Jim Riggleman.
