Biographical Information[edit]

Chuck Crim was signed as a 17th round pick in the 1982 amateur draft by the Milwaukee Brewers and scout Milt Sobel. He was a reliable component of the Brew Crew bullpen from 1987 to 1991, saving 42 games while twice leading the American League in appearances. Chuck's league leading seasons were his best, with a 7-6, 2.91 mark and 9 saves in 70 games (105 innings) in 1988 and a 9-7, 2.83 season with 7 saves in 76 games (117 2/3 innings) in 1989. He was traded to the California Angels for Mike Fetters after the 1991 season and was never the same pitcher, battling through shoulder injuries in three more seasons, the last for the Chicago Cubs.

After retiring, Crim was a coach at Canyon High School in Canyon Country, CA for three years. He was hired as a Southern/Mid California area scout by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fall of 2006. He signed Matt Magill. Crim was the pitching coach of the Ogden Raptors in 2009, Great Lakes Loons in 2010, and Chattanooga Lookouts in 2011-2012. He was named bullpen coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2013, staying until the end of the 2015 season.
