[edit] Biographical Information

Shortstop Bobby Meacham's big-league playing career may be best remembered for a 1984 incident when he suffered the impetuous wrath of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. In the fourth game of the season, Meacham entered in the eighth inning of a tie game as a defensive replacement. He committed a two-out error that allowed the winning run to score. Following the game, Steinbrenner ordered Meacham demoted all the way to Double A.

After his playing days were through, Meacham spent several years as a minor league coach and manager. He coached the Eugene Emeralds in 1991, and managed them in 1992. He was a coach for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox in 1993. Meacham managed the Carolina Mudcats in 1994 and the Calgary Cannons in 1995, then was the roving infield instructor for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1996 to 2001. He then managed the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes from 2002 to 2004.

Meacham spent 2006 with the Florida Marlins as the team's third base coach and was hired by the San Diego Padres as first base coach for 2007. He was named third base coach for the New York Yankees for the 2008 season, re-joining Joe Girardi with whom he had worked in Florida, but stayed there only one season. In 2010, he joined the Houston Astros' coaching staff as first base coach under new manager Brad Mills, bt was fired along with Mills and hitting coach Mike Barnett on August 18, 2012 with the team threatening to set a franchise record for losses for the second straight year.
