Midwest League Managers

Grady Little

One (partial) Midwest League season:


Playing Career

  • Drafted/Signed: Drafted in the 15th round of the 1968 summer draft by the Atlanta Braves.
  • Professional Career: Three seasons in the Braves and Yankees organizations.
  • Midwest League: Never played in the Midwest League.

Management style

On the whole, Grady Little's a conventional manager. His baserunning strategies are very conservative; his teams never gamble on the basepaths.


Grady is Brian Little's brother.
