    Marv Foley (59) -Marvis Foley was a backup catcher with the White Sox in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Two fun Marv facts:

    1. The last at bat of his major league career was the final out of Mike Witt's 1984 perfect game.

    2. As a minor league manager he's the only manager to win championships in all three AAA leagues: the International League, PCL and American Association. And I guess he's the only one who ever will, since there aren't three AAA leagues anymore...
