Midwest League Managers

Gene Dusan

One [partial] Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Oakland A's, 1st pick January 1968 secondary phase (Catcher, Long Beach CC).
  • Professional Career: Nine minor league seasons; mainly at the Triple-A level with the Oakland and Cleveland organizations.
  • Midwest League: Played for Burlington in 1969 and 1970.

Management style

Dusan's teams were extremely aggressive on the basepaths.


The 1982 TSN Guide credits Dusan with managing both Lynchburg & Little Falls for the full 1981 season. I've followed Jerry Jackson's lead and omitted the Little Falls record. Any clarification would be welcome.

Dusan appears to have retired to Bend, Oregon (he lived there in 1983, according to press coverage of his Mets assignment), where he's an educator. He's currently (2007) on the board of directors for the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League.
