Midwest League Managers

Russ Morman

Two Midwest League seasons:

Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Cubs, 1st Round, 1983
  • Professional Career: Morman had a long Triple-A career in many organizations. He played 207 major league games with White Sox, Royals, & Marlins.
  • Midwest League: Played for Appleton in 1984.
  • There's a profile of Morman's baseball career elsewhere on this website.

Management style

During Morman's years at Kane County, he was a fairly conventional Midwest League manager. He almost never calls for an intentional walk.

Worth knowing: Morman lost his position in the Marlins organization just before the 2002 season opened; like most of the Florida player development staff, he was let go when the ownership changed. I expect he caught on with the Red Sox that summer, but haven't been able to find any notice of that.
