Richard Alan Bosetti (born August 5, 1953) is a retired Major League Baseball outfielder who played from 1976 to 1982 for the Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, Toronto Blue Jays, and Oakland Athletics.

Bosetti was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 7th round of the 1973 amateur draft and made his major league appearance on September 9, 1976. In 1979, Bosetti played in all 162 games for the Blue Jays, and in the same season led all AL outfielders in putouts, assists, and errors. During his relatively short career in the big leagues, he is on record multiple places as stating it was his goal to urinate in the outfield of every baseball stadium in America.[1] [2]

On all four of the teams he played for in his career, he was teammates with pitcher Tom Underwood. Bosetti was released by the Oakland Athletics on September 6, 1982, at which point he retired.

After his baseball career, he returned to his hometown of Redding and became involved in local business and politics. In 2006, he was elected to the Redding City Council, and Bosetti has also served as mayor of Redding. He coaches the Simpson University baseball team[3] and is currently running for the California State Assembly, District 1.[4]
