Midwest League Managers

Brad Fischer

Three Midwest League seasons:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Free agent, Athletics, 1978 (catcher, Western Michigan University).
  • Professional Career: One season at Bend in the Northwest League, plus two MWL games.
  • Midwest League: Appeared in two games for Madison in 1984.

Management style

Brad Fischer's teams were reckless on the basepaths; whenever the opportunity presented itself, his teams ran. They also bunted a bit more than normal, which is probably consistent with the baserunning habits. His pitcher handling was about normal for his times and places, and he used the intentional pass sparingly.

Generally speaking, Fischer's teams were in the playoff hunt.


Note: The A's website believes that Fischer appeared in a Madison game in 1983. That's likely true, but none of my sources record single-game players for that season.
