                    • ------------------------------------Some of the Prominent Managers of Baseball:

                      1. Connie Mack - Pirates (1894-96), Phil. A's ('01-50) BB's closest thing to a saintly person.

                      2. John J. McGraw - Balt. (1899-1902), NY Giants (1902-32); From '03-31, 28 yrs., came in lower than 3rd only 5 times.

                      3. Ned Hanlon - 1899-1907 - Pirates, Orioles, Dodgers, Reds - invented inside BB, spread it through McGraw, Jennings, Robinson, etc.

                      4. Casey Stengel - Brooklyn (1934-36), Braves (1938-43), Yankees (1949-60), Mets (1962-65) colorful, tactical wiz.

                      5. Miller Huggins - Cardinals (1913-17), Yankees (1918-29), Tactical wiz, similar to Selee, Gleason, Stallings. Told Ruppert/Huston "Get me Ruth." Coped with Babe as best he could. Trained Gehrig to field well. After '25, told Ruppert, "team is fried", got new starting SS, 2B, C. Ruppert gave him best possible prospects.

                      6. Joe McCarthy - Cubs (1926-30), Yankees (1931-46), Red Sox ( 1948-50). The Joe Torre of the 30's. Top talent, merely had to do pitching staffs, pinch hitting options. Consistent winner, but with such top talent, hard to gauge his smarts. 9 pennants, 7 WS titles. But had Ruth, Gehrig, Dickey, Gomez, DiMag AND T. Williams.

                      7. Al Lopez - Cleveland (1951-56), White Sox (1957-65, '68-69). After long ML catching career, he broke up Stengel's 50's hegemony. Won pennants in '54 & '59. His Indians won 111 games in '54.

                      8. Joe Torre - Mets (1977-81), Braves (1982-84), Cardinals (1990-95), Yankees (1996-present). Covered some ground before arriving in Big Apple. Hard to better his record since. Resembles and behaves like Joe McCarthy. Has never been known to move a muscle during game. But his owner will buy him whatever he murmurs. It must be nice.

                      9. Bobby Cox - Atlanta (1978-81, '90-present), Toronto (1981-85). Since 1991, all he's done is win.

                      10. Leo Durocher - Dodgers (1939-48), Giants (1948-55), Cubs (1966-72), Astros (1972-73). Won pennants in '41, '51, '54. Suspended all of 1947 for saying BB had Mafia ties. Very sharp, natty dresser. Impeccable suits. Leo loved his silk & jewelry. Was like father to Willie Mays.

                      11. Walt Alston - Dodgers (1954-76). Presided over exit from Ebbets Field on Flatbush Ave. Won 6 pennants and 1 Division. Came in top 3 10 times, and in Division battles, 7 top 3 finishes.

                      12. Billy Martin - 1969, 1971-83, '85, '88 - traveling salesman, won wherever he went. Famed as Yank skipper, feuds with Steinbrenner.

                      13. Whitey Herzog - KC (1975-79), Cardinals (1980-90). Everywhere he went, he won. Like B. Martin.

                      14. Sparky Anderson - Reds (1970-78), Tigers (1980-95). Was winner with Big Red Machine. Good manager with good players = success.

                      15. Dick Williams - (1967-69, '71-88), Red Sox, A's, Angels, Montreal, Padres, Mariners. Dick was a traveler. Made his name with A's and Montreal. Won a pennant and 4 Division titles.

                      16. Tony Larussa - White Sox (1979-86), Oakland (1986-95), Cardinals (1996-present). Gained fame with Oakland. Won 4 Divisions in 5 yrs.

                      17. Cap Anson - White Sox (1879-97). Came in top 2 11 out of 13 yrs. Slugging 1Bman helped his own cause. From 1892-98, could hardly reach 4th.

                      19. Frank Chance - Cubs (1905-12), Highlanders (1913-14), Red Sox ('23). From '06-11 didn't finish lower than 2nd. Finished 1st 4 of 5 yrs.

                      20. Fred Clarke - Louisville (1897-99), Pirates (1900-15). Won 4 pennants, between 1900-12, finished lower than 3rd only once.

                      21. Earl Weaver - Baltimore (1968-82, '85-86). 6 Division titles. Between '68-82, finished lower than 3rd only twice, and in top 2 12 times.

                      22. Frank Selee - Braves (1890-01), Reds (1902-05) - From 1891-99, finished lower than 3rd only twice.

                      23. George Stallings - Braves (1913-20), Famed for '14 win.

                      24. Kid Gleason - White Sox (1919-23). Went 1, 2 with the Black Sox in '19-20. Then 7, 5, 7 with the carcass of the White Sox. He was real brains behind White Sox win in '17. Rowlings was just for show.

                      25. Danny Murtaugh - Pirates (1957-64, '67, '70-71, '73-76. Won 2 pennants and 2 Divisions. But also came in 4th or lower 7 times.

                      26. Charlie Grimm - Cubs (1932-38, '44-49, '60), Braves (1952-56). After long 1B career, when with Cubs initially, ran off 2, 3, 3, 1, 2, 2, 3. Later with Braves ran off 2, 3, 2.

                        Died: February 25, 1934, New Rochelle, NY, age 60,---d. internal hemorrhage caused by uremia.

                        W/Connie Mack, greatest manager all time.

                        From 1903 - 31, 28 yrs., came in lower than 3rd only 5 times! Almost impossible record to beat!
                        Came 1st 12 times, 2nd 10 times. Abrasive, colorful, dictatorial. New Cathedral Cem., Baltimore, MD.

                        • Edward Hugh (Ned) Hanlon

                          Born: August 22, 1857, Montville, CT
                          Died: April 14, 1937, Richmond, VA, age 79
                          Buried: New Cathedral cemetery, Baltimore, MO

                          Cleveland OF (1880), Detroit (1881-88), Pittsburgh (1889-91), Baltimore (1892)

                          Manager:
                          Pittsburgh manager (1889-91)
                          Baltimore manager (1892-98)
                          Brooklyn manager (1899-1906)
                          Reds manager (1906-07)

                          Hanlon, not McGraw developed inside tactics; hit & run, the squeeze, hit behind the runner, double steal, which singularly raised the level of play. He developed John McGraw, Wilbur Robinson, Hughie Jennings, Kid Gleason, Willie Keeler, Kelley, Bowerman. Won 4 pennants in row, 1894-97.

                          Ned was the principle share-holder in the Baltimore Federal L. team. Was also involved in ownership of the Baltimore Orioles. As the owner/manager of the Baltimore Orioles, Ned bought some of the remaining stock in the Brooklyn Dodgers after the 1898 season, and took the best Baltimore players to the Brooklyn team.

                          • Charles Dillion Stengel---AKA Casey Stengel

                            Born: July 30, 1890, Kansas City, MO
                            Died: September 29, 1975, Glendale, CA, age 85

                            Manager:
                            Dodgers' manager, 1934-36
                            Boston Braves' manager 1938-43
                            Yankees' manager, 1949-60
                            Mets' manager, 1962-65
                            Dodgers' coach, 1932-33

                            NL OF (1912-25),

                            Wife: Edna M, born Michigan, August 12, 1894, died February 3, 1978, Glendale, CA. They married in 1924.

                            Casey (& Mack) proved that a manager needs the team to win. With good teams, he won, without them he couldn't. Delightfully colorful. The Yankees' brass fired Casey following their 1960 World Series loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. When facing the reporters, Casey quipped, "I'll never make the mistake of being 70 again."

                              Boston Red Sox, 1948 - 1950

                              The Joe Torre of the 30's. Top talent, merely had to manage pitching staffs, pinch hitting options. Consistent winner, but with such top talent, hard to gauge his smarts. 9 pennants, 7 WS titles. But had Ruth, Gehrig, Dickey, Lazzeri, Pennock, Gomez, DiMag AND T. Williams.

                              In his 24 big-league seasons, Joe won 9 pennants and 7 World Championships, compiled a ML best .615 Won-Lost record, and best career World Series W-L %, .698. From 1907-25, had a very active minor league career as player/manager.
