2001 Baseball Roundup


THE 2001 baseball season began with the spotlight on two history makers. For the first time in Major League Baseball, two African-American managers are cited as the best in their respective leagues at the same time. Dusty Baker of the San Francisco Giants and Jerry Manuel of the Chicago White Sox wear the prestigious titles of Manager of the Year, a tribute to the way they guided their teams last year.

Baker, a three-time Manager of the Year, led the Giants to the National League West championship with a 97-65 record, the best in the major leagues. Manuel, in his third year as the White Sox manager, led his team to the American League Central title with a 95-67 record, the best in the American League. Their success has brought more attention to the fact that there still are only five African-American managers in the big leagues. Baker and Manuel are joined by Don Baylor of the Chicago Cubs, Lloyd McClendon of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Hal McRae of Tampa Bay.

In other baseball developments, a new, higher strike zone is being enforced in hopes of speeding the pace of the games; and recent studies indicate that if you want to be a millionaire, you should play baseball. Research reveals that more than 60 percent of players on opening-day rosters earn at least $1 million and the average salary is in excess of $2 million. So those athletes who have the choice of pursuing a career in either football, basketball, baseball or some other sport, might give strong consideration to baseball because of its financial rewards and career longevity.
