Midwest League Managers

Bruce Kimm

One Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Signed: White Sox, seventh round, 1969 (Catcher; Norway, Iowa, HS).
  • Professional Career: Twelve years in the White Sox and Tigers organizations; appeared in 186 major league games with the Tigers, Cubs, and White Sox. (Kimm was the catcher for most of Mark Fidrich's major league starts.)
  • Midwest League: Played at Appleton in 1970 and 1971.

Management style

There's nothing particularly unusual about Kimm's management style, as evidenced by his minor league record. His teams' baserunning skills seem to have been generally poor, however.
