Shortstop, Manager, Coach, 3 time All Star, 2 time World Series champion, World Series MVP.
Introducing our officially licensed Bucky Dent candle!
Bucky Dent is a former Major League Baseball shortstop who earned two World Series rings with the New York Yankees during his 12 year playing career. He played for teams such as the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and the Kansas City Royals. After retiring as a player Bucky went on to manage and coach with a variety of organizations such as the New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, Texas Rangers and Columbus Clippers – among others. He earned the distinguished honor of being Series Most Valuable Player in the 1978 World Series as a Yankee, having batted .417 in the series, helping to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers four games to two.
Bucky is well known to Boston Red Sox fans as the Yankee who hit the three-run homer which helped the Yankees take a 3-2 lead in the 1978 AL East tie-breaker game. It was even more of a surprise because Bucky was never considered to be a power hitter. Red Sox fans took to calling him Bucky “F**king” Dent from that day forward (known to be substituted as Bucky “Bleeping” Dent).
Bucky expressed his interest in cherry blossoms during discussions with Shining Sol. How perfect that it helped to create such a catchy and perfect name for his candle, Bleeping Blossoms. Enjoy the Spring like vibrancy of cherry blossom scent in the air!
