Orioles' Managers

My Orioles' managers & coaches autograph collection frequently takes a back seat to my Orioles' players autograph collection, and for good reason, as I put a lot more time and effort into the players collection. But I recently added a few new autographs of some past Orioles Managers and I now have a signature from all of them, so I figured I would do a quick rundown post to mention each of the 19 men who have skippered the O's since 1954. Here we go...

Jimmie Dykes (1954)

Paul Richards (1955-61)

Lum Harris (1961)

Billy Hitchcock (1962-63)

Hank Bauer (1964-68)

Earl Weaver (1968-82, 85-86)

Joe Altobelli (1983-85)

Cal Ripken Sr. (1987-88)

Frank Robinson (1988-91)

Johnny Oates (1991-94)

Phil Regan (1995)

Davey Johnson (1996-97)

Ray Miller (1998-99)

Mike Hargrove (2000-03)

Lee Mazzilli (2004-05)

Sam Perlozzo (2005-07)

 Dave Trembley (2007-10)
 Juan Samuel (2010)

Buck Showalter (2010-current)

It's been quite the merry-go-round since Earl left. A few of the guys from this century I had already forgotten about. Congrats on finishing that up!

What on Earth is a quadruple double? Four doubles in a game?

Very impressive. And fun to look through!

Zach-Thanks, and believe me, even for an O's fan, it's been hard to keep on top of!

NO- thanks! It is kind of a nice visual rundown, even if it churns up some unpleasant memories!

Great project so far. It feels so good to have most of them done. It's impressive.

Thanks Ben, it is a good feeling, but I will feel even better when I have them all!
