Midwest League Managers

Jim Gabella

Jim Gabella

Four Midwest League seasons, plus the new one:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: White Sox, round ten, 1976 (2B, Deerfield Beach HS [Florida])
  • Professional Career: Four years in the low minor leagues.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

Gabella's had two manager careers, and his methods have changed a bit over the years. He likes his players to run, and is fairly likely to call for a bunt.
