Midwest League Managers

Rick Patterson

evidently played as Ricky

Two Midwest League seasons:


Playing Career

  • Signed: Mets, apparently a free agent, 1975 (University of South Alabama)
  • Professional Career: Three minor league seasons, mostly spent at Wausau in the MWL.
  • Midwest League: Played for Wausau in 1975, 1976, and 1977.

Management style

Patterson's teams were exceptionally aggressive on the basepaths; they attempted lots of steals, and he often called for bunts. In contrast, his pitching decisions were quite conventional.


According to the 1989 SB yearbook, Patterson worked at University of South Alabama for five years. I need more detail before I can fit that into this page.
