A Roundup of Major League Managers

As they chase a pennant, these 'Boys of Summer' draw on years of wisdom

Terry Collins, 62, New York Mets

The national pastime has taken Collins around the world; he’s also managed in Mexico, Venezuela, China and the Dominican Republic. Not bad for a light-hitting utility infielder who never made it to the majors.

World Series titles: 0
Pennants: 0

Jim Tracy, 56, Colorado Rockies

Was NL manager of the year in his first (partial) season with Colorado. The Rockies started the 2009 season 18-28 under Clint Hurdle, and then finished 74-42 with Tracy.

Ned Yost, 57, Kansas City Royals

Yost served a 12-year apprenticeship as a coach with the Atlanta Braves before becoming a manager in 2003. He wears No. 3 in tribute to a late friend, NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt.

Brad Mills, 55, Houston Astros

Definition of job insecurity: In his first season as a Major League manager, Houston won 76 games. Last year, in his second season, the Astros won 56.

Ron Roenicke, 55, Milwaukee Brewers

Debuted as a Major League manager last year and shepherded the best season in franchise history: team-record 96 wins and the Brewers’ first division title since 1982.

World Series titles: 0
Pennants: 0

Mike Scioscia, 53, Los Angeles Angels

If he likes a job, he sticks with it. This is his 13th season guiding the Angels, the longest tenure of any active manager. Before that he spent 13 seasons as a catcher with the Dodgers, with the most games caught in franchise history. His Dodgers manager, Tommy Lasorda, said of Scioscia’s running ability, “If he raced his pregnant wife, he’d finish third.”

World Series titles: 1 (2002, Angels)
Other pennants: 0

Bob Melvin, 50, Oakland Athletics

Became interim manager in June of last year and did well enough to be brought back. He played for seven teams in 10 years as a big league catcher; he has managed three different teams in eight years as a manager.

World Series titles: 0
Pennants: 0
