Jeff Manto, 1996 Fleer Tiffany #14
These days, Manto is working as the White Sox hitting coach, having joined the surprising American League Central leaders last offseason. Under Jeff's watch, the Pale Hose are in the middle of the pack offensively, but trail only the Yankees with 164 total home runs. Catcher A.J. Pierzynski is having a career year at age 35, and designated hitter Adam Dunn and right fielder Alex Rios have also bounced back significantly from terrible 2011 performances.
