Midwest League Managers

Larry Cox

Two Midwest League seasons:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Phillies, free agent, 1966 (catcher).
  • Professional Career: 17 seasons, mostly at the Triple-A level, mostly in the Phillies organization. Played 348 major league games with the Phillies, Mariners, Cubs, and Rangers.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

Cox's teams always led their leagues in steal attempts, and (although he wasn't fanatical about it) they generally were among the league leaders in intentional passes and sacrifice bunts. This is your classic "little game" manager.

Considering the low-talent teams the Cubs kept giving him to manage, this guy was reasonably successful. Too bad he didn't get a chance in a good organization.
