Midwest League Managers

R.J. Harrison

Bob Harrison

Two Midwest League seasons:


Playing Career

  • Signed: St. Louis Cardinals, 23rd round, 1975 (catcher, Arizona State University)
    • Previously drafted by Oakland, 5th round, 1972
  • Professional Career: 5 minor league seasons in the St. Louis organization. Converted from catcher to pitcher before the 1976 season.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

While two of Harrison's teams were excellent, the others were a rather unremarkable lot. He liked to watch the the guys run--even when the running hurt the team.
