Synopsis: Since 1871, there have been over 690 managers and 1500 coaches in the major leagues. In this new, fully revised edition, of Baseball Skippers and Their Crews, Tom Brucato documents the lives and records of all of them. Many managers were coaches or even players, but it is the distinction of being the "Skipper" that sets them apart even from the great players. The manager must bring special talents to the game that go beyond the individual skills of each player or coach. In the early days of the game, many managers served in the dual post of manager and player, without the support of coaches. If the team fails, it is the "Skipper" who takes full responsibility.
Among those who have reached this pinnacle of baseball leadership are some who were players, coaches, sportswriters, minor league but not major league players, former or future umpires, and even a few who never played professional baseball. You will find them all here in this fascinating history of baseball managers and coaches.
