Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Chris Bosio was signed as a 2nd round pick (secondary phase) in the January 1982 amateur draft by the Milwaukee Brewers and scout Harry Smith. Bosio would make his major league debut in 1986 for the Brewers, the start of 11 years in the bigs. Bosio stayed with the Brewers thru 1992, when he moved to the Seattle Mariners via free agency. He quickly made history in 1993 as he hurled a no-hitter on April 22, 1993 versus the Red Sox. That game turned out to be the highlight of his stay with the Mariners. Injuries and declining production led Bosio out of the majors for good after playing for Seattle in 1996.

After his playing days, Bosio was a special assignment pitching coach in the Seattle Mariners organization in 2000-2002. He was the Tampa Bay Devil Rays pitching coach in 2003. In 2004 and 2005, Bosio was the assistant pitching coach at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, the worked for Lawrence University, first as its pitching coach and then as interim manager in 2006 and 2007.

Bosio was pitching coach of the Chattanooga Lookouts in 2008, and moved on to become pitching coach of the Nashville Sounds for 2009. On August 12, 2009 Bosio was named pitching coach of the Brewers replacing Bill Castro. In 2011 he was a pro scout for the Brewers. In 2012, he followed former teammate Dale Sveum, who had just been named manager of the Chicago Cubs, becoming the team's pitching coach.
