 NEW YORK (AP) -Vern Hoscheit, a coach on four World Series championship teams with the Oakland Athletics and the New York Mets, died Monday in Pierce, Neb. He was 85.
Hoscheit, the Mets' bullpen coach from 1984-87, died at the Pierce Manor nursing home following a long illness, team spokesman Jay Horwitz said.
Born in Brunswick, Neb., Hoscheit was a catcher in the New York Yankees' farm system for 12 seasons starting in 1941. He was a general manager for Quincy (1955-56), Peoria (1957), Greensboro (1958-59), then became president of the Three-I League in 1960.
Hoscheit joined the Baltimore Orioles and was a scout and minor league coordinator (1962-67) and coach (1968). He switched to the Oakland Athletics and was a coach from 1969-74, earning World Series rings in his final three seasons.
He coached for the California Angels (1976) and was the Mets' Gulf Coast League manager in 1983. With the parent team, he served as bullpen coach when New York won the World Series in 1986. He became a minor league catching instructor for the Mets in 1988.
Hoscheit is survived by a son, Billy Ray Hoscheit, and daughters Sherri Ann Huigens and Cathy Jean Brodhaugen.
A funeral is scheduled for Saturday at Brock House Funeral Home in Creighton, Neb.
