Midwest League Managers

Charlie Manuel

Chuck Manuel

One Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Signed: Minnesota, free agent (pre-draft), 1963 (Parry McCluer HS [Buena Vista, Virginia]).
  • Professional Career: 13 minor league seasons, mostly in the Twins system. Appeared in 242 major league games, again mostly with Minnesota, and starred for six seasons in Japan.
  • Midwest League: Played for Wisconsin Rapids in 1967 (where he nearly won the MWL triple-crown: led the league in hitting [.313], tied for lead in RBI [70], second in HR [15]).

Management style

Manuel's not a really unusual manager, but he's never really liked calling for bunts or intentional walks, and steals have never been an important part of his arsenal.

While it doesn't show here, Charlie's teams have usually been hitting-rich and pitching-poor. All in all, he's been quite successful.
