Midwest League Managers

Ron Gardenhire

One Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Mets, sixth round, 1979 (Infielder, University of Texas)
  • Professional Career: Nine professional seasons, about half of them on the Mets roster.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

Gardy's a mostly-conventional manager. He uses sac bunts more than most managers; this is probably balanced by his teams' generally excellent baserunning.
