Midwest League Managers

Rich Morales

One Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: White Sox, free agent, 1963 (?)
  • Professional Career: Eleven professional seasons, mostly in the White Sox system; played seven seasons with the ChiSox and two with the Padres. Morales was a notoriously poor major league hitter.
  • Midwest League: Played for Clinton in 1963.

Management style

Tactically, Morales was a pretty unremarkable manager. His year-to-year practice was more variable than most, but he never ventured far from normal in his on-field decisions.
