[edit] Biographical Information

Bernie Carbo of the Boston Red Sox hit a pair of pinch homers in the 1975 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds; one was a three-run homer tying the famous Game Six and sending it into extra innings, where it would be won on Carlton Fisk's home run. Carbo first came up to the major leagues with the Reds who actually drafted him ahead of Johnny Bench. He was one of the first fashion-conscious players of his era and one of only a few of his day to use a portable hair "blow dryer" in the locker room.

In 1989, he played for the Winter Haven Super Sox of the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He played in 43 games and hit .263 for the club.

He became manager of the Pensacola Pelicans in 2003.
