Ruben Amaro

Midwest League Managers

Ruben Amaro

Two Midwest League seasons:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Cardinals, free agent, 1954 (signed from Veracruz in the Mexican League)
  • Professional Career: Eleven major league seasons, mainly with the Phillies.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

Amaro's teams have always been pretty aggressive on the basepaths--they bunt quite a bit, and they like to steal.

My standard sources are described here.


Note: The 2003 BA Almanac incorrectly shows Ruben Amaro as the manager of the 2002 Gulf Coast Phillies. This team was actually managed by Roly De Armas.





The Midwest League plays Single-A, professional baseball in America's agricultural and industrial heartland. 16 teams play a 140 game schedule which begins in early April and ends Labor Day weekend.
