He’s not flashy, he’s not loud, he’s not controversial, but Texas Rangers manager Buck Showalter does have one thing in common with his highly-respected peers: winning.
Much like his managing style, Showalter has built his winning reputation from the ground up. After almost 10 years in the Yankees minor league system, Showalter moved to the major league level and eventually took over as manager for New York in 1992. Despite the big city spotlight and success, Showalter has surprisingly been flying under the media radar. That’s, in part, due to timing and Showalter’s unwavering managerial philosophy. He does not compromise.
