Miami Marlins announced that Schumaker had appointed the team’s next manager

October 26, 2022

Schumaker, a first-time manager, played in the big league for 11 seasons, the first eight of which he spent with the St. Louis Cardinals. He played on two Cardinals teams that won the World Series in 2006 and 2011.


The Marlins general manager Kim Ng said in a statement on Tuesday, “As we continue to expand as an organization, we believed it was critical to locate a person who had been a part of a winning culture.” “Skip’s leadership style, teaching abilities, and attention to detail made him the easy choice as the club’s next manager. He played on two championship teams and had a reputation for persistence and obtaining everything he is capable of.”


After serving as an assistant with the San Diego Padres for four seasons, Schumaker spent this season as the Cardinals’ bench coach.


In a statement, Schumaker said, “I’m thrilled and appreciative that [owner Bruce Sherman], Kim, and the Marlins organization have given me a chance to coach a perfect club. The next stage for our company and South Florida is to deliver a winning, sustainable culture, except for making the postseason, and I can’t wait to start.


The team did not renew Don Mattingly’s contract at the end of the season, so Schumaker took his position. Mattingly managed Miami for seven seasons and left with the most victories in the team’s history.
