Midwest League Managers

Don Werner

One partial Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Reds, 5th round, 1971 (Catcher, East HS [Appleton, WI])
  • Professional Career: Triple-A journeyman; 118 major league games with Cincinnati & Texas (7 seasons)
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

In all respects, Werner is a very conservative manager; sacrifice bunts are particularly rare. If he's got good baserunners, he likes to set 'em free.
