A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Earl Weaver put his best defensive players on the field early in the game instead of just making late-inning defensive replacements. Whitey Herzog became one of baseball s great managers by his use of players who could bunt and by playing for one run over and over again. Both of these men are known for their styles and tactics and full coverage of them, along with many other managers, can be found in this biographical dictionary. The entries are based on interviews, data and anecdotes from owners, coaches, and players on the more than 600 men who have managed major league teams over the past 125 years. The entries include birth and death dates, the teams and dates they managed, win-loss records, winning percentages, and standings. Listings are included of managers of 1,000 games or more, managers with one-game careers, managers with the best winning percentages, and managers with the most wins. A complete listing of managers in the history of each team is provided in this title. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780786447039

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Earl Weaver put his best defensive players on the field early in the game rather than make late-inning defensive replacements, and he didn't like to bunt, figuring if you played for only one run that's all you'd get. Whitey Herzog, by contrast, became one of the greats by using players who could bunt and by playing for one run over and over again. Full coverage of them and 600 other major league managers over a 125 year period can be found in this work. The entries are based on interviews, standard data and anecdotes from owners, coaches, and players. Information includes birth and death dates, teams and dates managed, win-loss records, winning percentages, and standings. Lists are included of managers of 1,000 games or more, those with one-game careers, those with the best winning percentages, and those with the most wins. A complete list of managers in the history of each team is provided.
