Synopsis

*Why is baseball the only team sport whose managers where a uniform?







*Which two managers have led three different teams to the World Series?







*Who was the last player-manager?







*Which managers' uniform numbers have been retired?







*What happened when Ted Turner took over as manager after Atlanta had posted 16 consecutive losses?















These an many more questions are answered in Bob Bloss's Baseball Managers. The perfect book to have for settling a baseball argument, it contains records of each of the more than 400 twentieth-century managers. It traces managing evolution from the original Cincinnati Red Stockings to the Arizona Diamondbacks and from the early days of player-managers and their fourteen-man squads to today's relentless fan and media second-guessing and the emergence of free agency -- which now often forces managers to enter battle with teams vastly restructured from the previous season.















With chapters on controversial managerial decisions, Hall-of-Fame manager profiles, and oddball managerial situations; humorous and sometimes poignant anecdotes; and many useful tables listing managers alphabetically, by teams, and by winning percentages, Baseball Mangers is a fascinating compilation of statistics, trivia, and memories.

Bob Bloss is a freelance baseball journalist who began his writing career in 1960. He has played the role of announcer as well as reporter and is a member of the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association and SABR, the Society of American Baseball Research. Once a slow, second-string high school outfielder in Erie, PA, who could hit a curve ball only when he knew it was coming -- and then not very far -- Bloss now chronicles baseball and baseball managing.
