Gardner Jr. to be new manager in Harrisburg

Recommended Posts

The Harrisburg Patriot-News reported today that Billy Gardner Jr. will manage the Harrisburg Senators in 2020.

His father played ten seasons in the major leagues, four of those with the Orioles.  He won the award for Most Valuable Oriole in 1957, when he led the American League in doubles.  Retrosheet and Baseball Reference refer to him simply as Billy rather than Billy Sr., perhaps because his major league playing career ended in 1963 and Billy Jr. wasn't born until 1966.

I can still remember watching on TV as Billy settled under Hank Bauer's popup in shallow right-center to make the final putout that secured Hoyt Wilhelm's no-hitter on Sept. 20, 1958.
