"(Chris) Bosio throws strikes. He has only marginally good stuff, but succeeds by throwing a variety of breaking pitches at constantly changing speeds, keeping the ball down, working fast, working inside and making hitters beat him." - Bill Mazeroski in 'Bill Mazeroski's Baseball' (1993)

Christopher Louis Bosio (born April 3, 1963 in Carmichael, California - near Sacramento) is a former professional baseball pitcher and pitching coach. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Milwaukee Brewers and Seattle Mariners from 1986 to 1996.
