Showalter record is now 1,000-958 in 14 seasons with the Yankees, Arizona, Texas and Baltimore. As I look at his record I see a future column this season on Showalter’s 1000th defeat.
Buck joins Dusty Baker, Bruce Bochy, Davey Johnson, Jim Leyland, Mike Scioscia and Bobby Valentine among active managers in the 1,000-win club.
Showalter’s first win came on April 7, 1992, at the old Yankee Stadium when New York beat Boston (who else?) and Roger Clemens, 4-3.
The record for most managerial wins belong to Connie Mack, the owner of the Philadelphia A’s with 3731. John McGraw is next on the list with 2763 and Tony LaRussa retired with 2728.
Showalter is now 58th on the all-time list with Chuck Dressen at 1008 next on the list.

More managerial milestones:
Another milestone was reached last night as the Tigers topped Kansas City, 9-3 for Jim Leyland‘s 1600th win. Leyland ranks 16th all-time and Fred Clarke, with 1602 wins, is up next.
The Cubs and Cincinnati were rained out last night which prevented Dusty Baker from moving closer to a milestone. Baker is 20th on the all-time list with 1495 wins.
The Red Sox lost to the Oakland A’s last night 5-3 which prevented Bobby Valentine from tying Art Howe for 45th on the all-time win list. Bobby V has 1128 victories. In that same game, A’s manager Bob Melvin earned win number 552 which leaves him just one behind Gene Lamont on the all-time list.
The Phillies topped the Braves last night, 4-2, giving Charlie Manuel his 878th win. He needs one to tie George Stallings for 67th place on the win list.
The Cardinals topped the Pirates last night, 10-7, which prevented Bucs manager Clint Hurdle from tying Tris Speaker on the all-time managerial wins list with 617 wins.
The Mets lost last night to the Astros, 6-3, preventing manager Terry Collins from picking up win number 535 and tying Hugh Duffy.
Mark Kotsay hit a pinch two-run homer with one out in the 8th against Francisco Rodriguez to give the Padres a 2-0 win against the Milwaukee Brewers last night and give manager Buddy Black his 396th win, just one behind Dan Howley for 161st on the all-time list.
Finally, if you are keeping track, the Astros manager Brad Mills holds a narrow one win lead over Arizona’s Kirk Gibson, 142-141. Mills holds a significant lead in losses, 206-128.
