Billy Gardner, Jr.

Midwest League Managers

Billy Gardner

Three Midwest League seasons:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Royals, round 50, 1987 (1B, Mitchell JC [Connecticut])
  • Professional Career: Two seasons in the low minors.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

Gardner's a conventional, but rather conservative, manager. We Battle Creek fans recall him as entertainingly short-fused.
