Midwest League Managers

John Boles

One Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Signed: Joined the White Sox as a minor league manager in 1981 after coaching at St. Xavier College & the University of Louisville.
  • Professional Career: Never played professional baseball.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

Boles has been a super-aggressive manager whose teams usually run wild on the basepaths. He's always been more willing to let his pitchers complete games than most of his contemporaries.


Boles coached at St. Xavier and the University of Louisville before joining the White Sox organization in 1981
