Ron Washington played 10 seasons for five clubs, compiling lifetime totals of 20 home runs and 146 RBIs. His managerial apprenticeship took place in Oakland, where he served as the team's third base and infield coach from 1997 to 2006, tutoring many of the A's young stars. He was given his chance to take over a big league squad in 2006, when Texas fired Buck Showalter and named Washington the new manager. He currently has the Rangers in the hunt to make the playoffs for the first time in a decade.
