Dodgers Coaching Staff Possesses 30 All-Star Game Appearances

As has been widely reported throughout baseball circles, no MLB franchise has opened up the vault (over the past year), more so than that of the Los Angeles Dodgers. When combining the acquisitions of names like Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu, with a roster that already boasted of Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Clayton Kershaw, suddenly, the LA National League squad appears to resemble what could be described as a big league all-star team (on paper at least).

While the talent on the field most certainly warrants the level of attention it is receiving, one more fairly remarkable 2013 Dodger factoid involves the level of talent residing within the ranks of the team's coaching staff. In total, the LA bench brass lays claim to a whopping 30 combined All-Star Game appearances. Led in this category by manager Don Mattingly and new hitting coach Mark McGwire, the men of the dugout and coaches boxes have accomplished a thing or two as active players. Below is a breakdown of the group's unparalleled résumé, just in case times get a little desperate during this upcoming season.

Mattingly – 6 (1984-1989)

McGwire – 12 (1987-1992, 1995-2000)

3B coach Tim Wallach – 5 (1984, 1985, 1987, 1989, 1990)

1B coach Davey Lopes – 4 (1978-1981)

Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt – 2 (1980, 1983)

coach Manny Mota – 1 (1973)
