Known for his strong arm, Wine rarely played enough, or enough full games, to accumulate high statistical totals; he was bothered by a bad back and missed most of the 1966 and ’68 seasons because of it (he had surgery for a ruptured spinal disc in 1968). However, he won a Gold Glove in 1963, led the NL in fielding in 1967, and, playing for the Expos in 1970, he set an ML shortstop record with 137 double plays (it was his only season with more than 420 at-bats; he had 501). His best batting average came in his rookie 1962 season when he hit .244; his .215 lifetime average is the fourth-worst all-time (2,500 or more at-bats).
After retiring, Wine was a coach for the Phillies (1972-83) and scouted for the Braves (1984, ’86). While a coach with Atlanta in 1985, he was named interim manager. His son Robbie, a catcher for the Astros, was a first-round draft pick in 1983.
