Phil Nevin, who played 12 seasons in the big leagues, competed for the United States at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. He was selected by the Houston Astros with the first overall pick in the 1992 amateur draft, against the wishes of Astros scout and Hall of Famer Hal Newhouser, who felt the pick would be better served on a high school infielder in Michigan named Derek Jeter. He made the All-Star team in 2001, a year in which he hit 41 home runs for the San Diego Padres.
Nevin managed the Orange County Flyers in 2009, then moved to the Detroit Tigers organization. He was the skipper of the Erie SeaWolves in 2010 and of the Toledo Mud Hens from 2011 to 2013. In 2014, he moved to the Arizona Diamondbacks organization as manager of the Reno Aces. He was one of the candidates in the running for the position of manager of the parent Diamondbacks after the 2016 season, but lost out to Torey Lovullo. A few days later, he accepted a position as third base coach of the San Francisco Giants in 2017, but was let go after the season. In 2018, he joined the New York Yankees as third base coach.
He was eligible for election to the Hall of Fame in 2012, but did not receive a single vote. His son Tyler Nevin reached the majors in 2021; another son, Kyle, played college baseball with Baylor University.
